Museum of Water is a radically different museum that showcases our connection to the world’s most essential life source. For over a year UK artist Amy Sharrocks has been towing her rusty trailer around the State, turning strangers into friends and liquid into art as she collects watery donations and the memories that go with them.
The exhibition is the culmination of the last year’s work. View the ever-growing collection as you walk through more than 500 bottles of water, each with its own remarkable story. There are samples the Great Barrier Reef, grey water from a laundry and a splash from a Paralympian’s swimming pool.
Share your own story and add to the collection by donating a bottle of water that is precious to you during the Festival 8 Feb – 4 Mar 11am – 3pm, daily.
