Description

ARTIST EXPOSES ANCIENT AQUIFER IN CITY CRACK

Shops in Perth’s Murray Street Mall may be forced to close after concrete foundations cracked to reveal an abyss that might connect with an ancient aquifer known as the Yarragadee. The cause of the collapse is still unknown and investigations have been hampered by groundwater gushing up into the abyss below the shop.

Using submersible drones local media artist Sohan Ariel Hayes has partnered with the Perth Public Art Foundation to present a light installation illuminating the abyss, allowing the public to experience this tangible connection to the immensity of the Yarragadee.

Sohan Ariel Hayes presents Descent into Yarrgadee, a Perth Public Art Foundation commission for perthFLUX in partnership with the City of Perth and Artsource.

Opening hours: Wed – Sat, 11am – 3pm and 5 – 8pm, Sun, 12 – 4pm
