The Deepest Blue Exhibition Publication

The Deepest Blue Exhibition Publication


This exhibition publication accompanied the show, The Deepest Blue. Held over a month, The Deepest Blue was an exhibition that sought to explore the complexities of the mind through the extended metaphor of water.

The book features essays that approach on the works of Virginia Woolf, Frida Kahlo, Helen Frankenthaler and Zelda Fitzgerald from new angles, and how the exhibition’s contemporary response adds to a cohesive understanding of how mental health has been explored in art.

Poet and performer Deborah Emmanuel provides a different perspective to Virginia Woolf’s death in relation to water; writer and thinker Jeremy Fernando explores the works and life of Frida Kahlo in relation to Renée Ting’s new work; poet Jollin Tan looks at the letters Virginia Woolf and Zelda Fitzgerald wrote to their husbands through Modernist philosophies; and poet Samuel Lee reads the formal innovations in Helen Frankenthaler’s work with Chloë Manasseh’s modern iteration.

The publication also features photographs of the four exhibited artists’ works in progress, and collages that visualise the exhibition’s exploration of mental health and water.

This publication was published as a collaboration between SAND Magazine and Object Lessons Space.
