Water is life, everywhere water is connected with life and water is an essential element of life that has been neglected and taken for granted. Demand for clean water is increasing, which increases demands on our local environments. But over recent decades, due to the increased pressure on our natural environment, water has also become a highly charged social, cultural and political resource.
Tauranga-based Swedish artist Jeanette Schäring is inviting the local community to contribute water samples and even stories from their everyday lives and surroundings to create her dynamic installation Whose Water Are You?.
Whose Water Are You? is a dialogue about the water in us, the water in our lives, the water in our environment and it’s spiritual connection and meaning in all of life.
