Undersea stories at the National Maritime Museum

Published: Friday 30th of May 2008

Often it seems that the world under the seas is teeming with strange creatures and alien life forms. Now a new exhibition at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London, takes a look at the mystique of the world beneath the waves and examine how humans gain an understanding of the planet we inhabit.

The Undersea World and Other Stories looks into Simon Patterson's explorations of themes including sea, stars and time. From mapping the skies to exploring the ocean deep, the exhibition looks at Patterson's attempts to understand mankind's interpretation of its own existence.

This might sound like heavy stuff, but Patterson's work is full of humour and irreverence that will amuse and entertain.

Born in 1967, Patterson was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1996 and has work featured in galleries such as the Tate Modern and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The exhibition runs until October 26th.

London Pass holders can receive free admission to the National Maritime Museum and a free souvenir guide.
