#Water is Life
Honouring the waterways that her ancestors have travelled for thousands of years, Quandamooka artist Elisa Jane Carmichael explores connection to place, people and culture in Water is Life.
Installed within Brisbane’s Southbank parklands, Water is Life, represents a stream flowing into the nearby Brisbane River, with dilly bags soaking local food sources for days to cleanse them of their toxins.
Water is Life was made in our Brisbane Workshop using carved Australian Juparana granite and cast concrete.
This place of significance remains a place of learning – where cultures, spiritualties and ways of living with the environment live on.- Elisa Jane Carmichael
