The Fairy Tale Water Hole: Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne

by Marquette Turner

in Features, News & Views

Swiss artists Gerda Steiner and Jorg Lenzlinger have brought their fairy-tale world to Australia to create The Water Hole in Melbourne’s Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.

Their piece begins as a winding, arched corridor with a tongue-in-cheek silver lining, the passage shimmers.

Using spacesuit material that rustles in the air, the slithery texture is supported by sticks.

You next arrive at a rainforest with old plumbing and hanging debris.

It truly is a marvel.
