Art in the Reservoir

Date: Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 October // 9am to 4pm

Location: Spring Hill Reservoirs 226 Wickham Terrace, Brisbane

About the Event:

Brisbane City Council has commissioned artists Caitlin Franzmann, Dale Gorfinkel and Ross Manning to present a new installation in the Spring Hill Service Reservoirs. The artwork will use sound, film and kinetic sculpture to reimagine the history and meaning of this once vital infrastructure. Visitors are invited to submerge themselves in an altered space that evokes the memory of water and helps us to consider our precarious reliance on this life-sustaining element.

The three artists have been collaborating since 2015. They have presented live performances at the Foundry, Red Hill and exhibited an audio-visual installation at the Institute of Modern Art in January 2017.  They share interests in Australian heritage, architecture and the natural environment and independently work with light, sound and performance in their practices.  Themes of improvisation, movement and listening influence their immersive installations and performances. With this project, the artists will focus their investigations on the forces of water.
