Book launch FORGOTTEN SEAS by Tanja Engelberts
RADIUS is pleased to invite you to the launch of the publication FORGOTTEN SEAS by artist Tanja Engelberts. Join us on Sunday the 28th of May 2023 for a series of presentations, followed by an informal discussion and drinks reception.
The world offshore is a world unknown. At least for most of us. Fascinated by the flashing lights in the distance, like the call of sirens on the horizon, Tanja Engelberts became interested in the offshore oil and gas industry. FORGOTTEN SEAS is a photographic exploration of Engelberts’ archive, consisting of documentary photographs taken during her trips on maintenance vessels and on the platforms, as well as historical images she collected over the years. It is a testament of seventy years of gas and oil drilling in the North Sea, an industrial landscape that is slowly disappearing.
