    Freshwater (3/3): Taps with Joseph Griffiths

    Freshwater (3/3): Taps with Joseph Griffiths

    This episode is Taps, the last of three episodes in our Freshwater cluster. A tap is a link. It represents access, or lack thereof. It appears benign, until the water stops running. For many, our relationship to water is mediated through taps. Urban planning and colonial intervention has made the tap a tool of control. ‘Managing’ water and monetizing it. Taps bring water to us. Our lives and routines rely on taps being ‘on’. But what happens when they’re not?

    Taps features an in-depth discussion with Joseph Griffiths who speaks to his work Fountains for Moonee Ponds Creek (2017-18), in which he reimagined the creek’s heavily engineered form as a sculptural artefact.

    Fresh Water (2/3): Pools with Kieran Bryant and Megan Payne & Oonagh Slater

    Fresh Water (2/3): Pools with Kieran Bryant and Megan Payne & Oonagh Slater

    Pools have many states. We flock to them for play and restoration when they’re full. When they’re empty or stagnant, they’re often neglected. We use pools to give birth, to cleanse ourselves and to relax. We dam to support agriculture and to redirect water to cities. When brimming and clean pools are sites of relief. The opposite when poisoned or depleted. Access to pools has instigated social movements, and changed the course of history. They are sites where we gather.‘Pools’ is the grounding theme of this episode.

    CANVAS speaks to artist Kieran Bryant, and collaborators Oonagh Slater & Megan Payne on their relationship to water and how they have represented it in their work.

    Fresh Water (1/3): Rivers with Auntie Rhonda Dixon & Clare Britton, Kalanjay Dhir and Luke Patterson

    Fresh Water (1/3): Rivers with Auntie Rhonda Dixon & Clare Britton, Kalanjay Dhir and Luke Patterson

    Like our veins, rivers course through land nourishing life. Essential and yet, depleted, these passageways carry the histories of care and sovereignty; displacement and degradation; resistance and survival. Despite interruptions; damming and pollution; rivers are underestimated; stronger and more determined than shallow colonial engineering. We are born of the water rivers carry, we are sustained by it and it cleanses us. They are sites of devotion and exploitation, of new life and loss, of abundance and scarcity. ‘Rivers’ is the grounding theme of this episode. 

    CANVAS speaks to visual artist Clare Britton and Gadigal Elder, artist and activist, Aunty Rhonda Dixon-Grovenor, Gamilaroi poet, folklorist and educator Luke Patterson and inter-disciplinary artist Kalanjay Dhir. These artists discuss recent works and their broader practices which have dealt physically and thematically with Rivers.

    In Waves we chat with Paula do Prado and Tomas Marinangeli, two visual artists and mother and son who have been working together to explore the ocean as a spiritual place and a space of crossing over. Though working together they’ve found themselves reflecting on the spiritual connection their ancestors had with the sea and how these intergenerational experiences and memories play out today. Tomas also sings us a song! We hear from artist and musician Alexandra Spence as she reimagines the relationships between the listener, the object and the surrounding environment with her audio piece The Sea, The Sea.
