Museum of Water is a radically different museum that showcases, in Australia’s driest state, our connection to the world’s most essential life source. For over a year UK artist Amy Sharrocks and WA custodians have been towing a rusty trailer, collecting watery donations and the memories that go with them.
The whole collection is at Fremantle Arts Centre. You can wander through a WA landscape where you can see more than 500 bottles of water, each with its own remarkable story. There are samples from a Dragon Tree Soak, grey water from a laundry, a splash from a Paralympian’s swimming pool.
The Museum of Water exhibition launches tonight at Fremantle Arts Centre. Included in this beautiful exhibition are the three bound volumes of students’ work that make up Watermarks. We are very pleased to be able to share this incredible book with you which features stories and drawings from students here at St Emilie’s.
