Whose Water Are You?
Jeanette Schäring
14 April – 15 July 2018

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.

The artist would like you to become part of this project, and contribute water samples and stories from your everyday lives and surroundings to create this beautiful installation.

To take part, please bring one or two samples of 500mls to 1L of water, collected from different sources (such as your tap, a puddle, a local stream or from the ocean), to Tauranga Art Gallery in a recyclable watertight container on the dates and times mentioned below. If you are not sure what type of container to use, a soft-drink bottle is ideal.

You will be asked to fill in a form when you arrive, and you are also invited to bring a type written story or memory of up to 300 words, about water and what it means to you.

Please bring your water samples to the gallery at these dates and times:
- 21 March 2018 - 1:30pm to 4pm
- 24 March 2018 - 10am to 2pm
- 25 March 2018 - 10am to 2pm
- 27 March 2018 - 10am to 2pm
