Exhibitions take place in venues including a chateau and a ferry and encompass photography, installation, performance, sculpture and more.
Much of the work has been created during the 2018 diep-haven residencies in both Sussex and France in places including many different types of gardens in Sussex and Normandy.
Titled Terra Firma, this edition of diep-haven takes the relationship between the human and the landscape as its starting point: discarding any assumptions of the earth as neutral ground, the festival will explore the tensions between human designs and the autonomous forms of intelligence that reside in the natural and, more specifically, botanic world.
Rosie Hermon, one of the curators for this year's festival, said:
"This year's programme is one of the largest since the festival's inception - stretching out of Dieppe and Newhaven, into the surrounding cross-channel region of Normandy and East Sussex and taking place in a wide range of venues, with artists creating bodies of work in a range of disciplines.
"Terra Firma takes as its starting point the shifting relationship between the human, the land and its vegetation, destabilising any assumptions that the earth that we stand on is inanimate or neutral ground.
"Many of the works are new commissions, developed through series of artist residencies in gardens and on farms over the last year in both regions.
"Each artist has approached the particular context in which they have worked with great sensitivity, which is reflected in the series of thoughtful and reflective responses to site and landscape produced for this year's festival."
