Looking beneath the surface is becoming quite the rewarding pastime in Spring Hill. And, climbing beneath the surface as well. Fresh from being transformed into an illuminated wonderland, the suburb's reservoirs will be the site of another piece of art. This time, it's a blend of sound, film and kinetic sculpture.
Don't be fooled by the rather plain name — Art in the Reservoir promises a creative treat over October 7 and 8. Open from 9am until 4pm as part of Brisbane Open House, it'll host a commissioned installation by artists Caitlin Franzmann, Dale Gorfinkel and Ross Manning. In keeping with the weekend's theme of exploring the city's spaces and considering its past, the work will ask visitors to contemplate the space's original use by evoking the memory of water.
Just what that entails will be discovered on the day, but attendees are advised to wear enclosed shoes.
