Artist Chris Dobrowolski brings Hull's beaches to The Deep car park, as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017. 29 March 2017

Washed Up Car-go, the first of these co-commissions at The Deep, has been created by artist Chris Dobrowolski, who studied at Hull School of Art and Design.  It consists of three cars, each containing a small section of beach, placed in the car park of The Deep. With this work, Dobrowolski aims to highlight the disposable culture of mass consumption, recreating the high tide and line of debris and pollution washed ashore within these specially modified cars.

Featuring material gathered from the Humber and Holderness Peninsula, plastic marine animals and video projections as the core of his new installation, Dobrowolski revisits a common theme to his work in playing on the notion of real and unreal.
