Drawing lines with our bodies on opposite sides of the globe, this walk, will complete the call and response GPS drawing A river on the other side of the world, echoing the bend walked on the Vltava River in Prague on June 12th (as a part of the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design). These paired walks are an opportunity to think about drawing, bodies, water, The Cooks River, walking and understanding place. Hosted by the Composting Feminisms Reading Group, this walk share's aspects of artist Clare Britton's PhD research A Week on the Cooks River.
Readings: Astrida Nemiamis’ Bodies of Water, Jenn Hamilton’s All the World’s a Drain, Saskia Beudel’s Fossils in the City, Asher Milgate’s Oral History Project and Clare Britton's Travelling the Cooks River from Yagoona to Botany Bay.
Welcomed by Aunty Rhonda Dixon-Grovenor, walkers on the Cooks are given silver casts of detritus- shells, plastic and rust -collected along the banks of the river.
