A fantastic review of Troubled Waters, including work by JANET LAURENCE, has been published by Artlink. Troubled Waters is a suite of interdisciplinary exhibitions and projects that consider the impact of human activity and climate change on natural and marine environments, currently on view at the UNSW Galleries until 5 November.
Ann Finegan describes Laurence's work:
"Janet Laurence’s multimedia installation was the most compelling. Her trademark glass vessels, filled with drinking water, sat like flasks on a riverbank over a flowing river of semi-transparent white fabric onto which were projected the ghostly swimming skeletons of tiny fish and micro organisms. This highlighted the disconnect between town and country, between the life-supporting water of fragile inland river systems and, a world away, the sterile product of filtered city water from plentiful coastal dams."
