Deluge (2018) is a culmination of Gideon Mendel’s twelve years of work on Drowning World (2007-ongoing), in which he has photographed and filmed across thirteen countries. The exploration of the effects of flooding and climate change depicts a range of individual stories positioned within a synchronous global narrative in a way that is personally intimate and deeply political. Within a flooded landscape, life is turned upside down and normality is suspended; as such, the lives of these individuals become evidently intertwined amidst a deepening visual complexity. In all of his years responding to floods, Mendel has accumulated a vast archive of footage, which is fully activated within this presentation.
