Projects    One River - Alluvial Connections

Alluvial Connections

For the centenary celebrations of Canberra, Robyn Archer AO conceived a project that involved artists from ten locations across the Murray Darling Basi. They created presentations of the meaning and connections of their place within the Basin.

At the end of the Murray Darling Basin system, the alluvial sediment from all the upstream activities collects in the river, in Lakes Alexandrina and Albert and in the Coorong. Like the sediments, people’s stories also collect and become embedded, creating another layer of connections.

Alluvial Connections represents the River Murray where it meets the sea at Goolwa SA. Into a visual installation of river stones and alluvial sands, it incorporates song, story-telling, projections of place and collected stories.

It was presented at Signal Point Gallery, Goolwa SA and the Belconnen Art Centre, Canberra ACT.
