“Life, death, and all the washing up in between.” From a cool drink on a scorching day, to a surfer’s exhilaration at a good wave, to a warm bath at the end of a day, water is a liquid both ubiquitous and essential in our lives. But how often do we stop to think about just what it means to us?
At the Perth Museum, artist-in-residence Amy Sharrocks is inviting us to do exactly that.
During the upcoming Perth International Art Festival, Sharrocks is inviting the community to bring their water – vessels of the precious drops, and the stories behind them – to contribute to the mosaic of water pieces that will ultimately take shape in 2018 as a new, Australian edition of the UK-based Museum of Water.
Examples elsewhere include a crumpled bottle of water bought at a Kylie Minogue concert, or a child’s take on “ghost water.”
So choose your water, find a vessel, and go along during February and March to leave your mark on how Western Australians view water.
