ART IN PLACE: Confluence

A spectacular night-time celebration of light and art transforming where our rivers meet.

ART IN PLACE is the City of Melville’s new series of temporary public artworks.

Perth-based artists VJzoo (Kat Black and Jasper Cook) will collaborate with Kambarni (Kamsani Bin Salleh) to deliver the first project for ART IN PLACE. Their artwork, Confluence, will be an ephemeral projection-based installation across the body of water and illuminated on a fleet of boats, where the Swan (Derbarl Yerrigan) and Canning (Djarlgarro Beeliar) rivers meet.

 Highlighting the historical and contemporary significance of the joining of the two rivers, known to the Bibbulmun people as Gabbi Kowangalup, ‘the place where the water comes out of the hole’, Confluence promises to be an unforgettable night-time experience for all ages.

Thursday, 21 June to Sunday, 24 June 2018, nightly from 6.00pm to 8.30pm

Canning Beach Road foreshore, Applecross (between the South of Perth Yacht Club and Dunvegan Road).
