The whale forever exists, like Utopia, as a parable, a myth, and a nightmare – caught between the wide open ocean and our two-dimensional confinement, between reality and imagination.

We account the whale immortal, an ever-changing film and a one-off performance, explores the arrival of three mythic whales in the Thames, from the 17th to the 21st century, as evocative emblems of Utopian intent.

Jessica Sarah Rinland is an artist-filmmaker whose work was shown internationally, winning numerous awards. Natural history, science and the use of celluloid are recurring themes.

Dr Edward Sugden is a lecturer in American Literature at King’s College London, working on time, space, and utopia in the Americas.

Philip Hoare is a writer, broadcaster and curator. His book Leviathan or, The Whale won the 2009 BBC Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction.

We account the whale immortal: Film and performance is part of Paths to Utopia, a collection of new art works to celebrate the 500th anniversary of Thomas More’s inspirational book Utopia, taking place across King’s College London’s Strand Campus and Somerset House this summer.
