#fire and water
Reconciliation Place is located along the central axis stretching between Mount Ainslie and Australia’s New Parliament House. The Australian government commissioned works from three leading Aboriginal artists to be installed in Reconciliation Place. Each installation incorporates elements of Indigenous heritage, folklore and hope.
Judy Watson’s fire and water creates an evocative experience that saturates the senses and establishes a strong sense of place. Watson uses a series of sculptural elements, ephemeral water devices, floor inlays, plantings and striking ‘bower’ like screens to initiate the journey into Reconciliation Place.
