When I Grow Up I Want To Be A Ship is a new artwork and installation by sound artist and composer Emily Peasgood. It takes the form of a song, played through speakers in the gallery space, exploring Southampton’s complex relationship to the sea. Spanning a period of over 400 years, the song’s lyrical content explores the city’s every-changing coastline from the 1600s to the present day and into the future. Informed and inspired by local histories and local people, the song invites visitors to immerse themselves in the story of the Solent.

Friday 11th March until Sunday 8th May at God’s House Tower.

We will also be hosting an exhibition closing event on Friday 6th May at GHT. Find out more and book your free ticket here
