Copperfield, London is pleased to present (This) precious stone set in the silver sea, a group show exploring what it means to be an islander, insularity and the perception and representation of islands throughout history.
(This) precious stone set in the silver sea / 18 January – 6 March 2020
This fortress built by nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall,
Or as a moat defensive to a house
(William Shakespeare, Richard II)
