A major new exhibition by Yoke, Undercurrent draws upon research and personal experience of the Aire & Calder navigation and its surrounding waterways.
The exhibition is the resulting showcase of Yoke’s project ‘Akkyduck’ through which Yoke have been exploring the stories past and present of the inland waterways, specifically Stanley Ferry, Wakefield.
Focusing on the physical and psychological tensions that arise from a rich history, re-appropriation after economic decline to a leisure pursuit, and from the constant pressure, flow and strength of the water Undercurrent hopes to explore the place where tranquillity, excitement, dread and fear collide.
