Artist Statement

The 50-metre swimming pool is a communal space ubiquitous to country towns in Australia. Beneath the soil another pool of water fights for survival – that of the underground pool – the aquifer. Above and below the surface water, which is the basic building block of life, permeates our collective memory.
