Water Works

WATER WORKS   16 March – 9 April 2010

Water Works is an arts project in which 8 residents in the London borough of Brent, aged 50 or over, will use photography to record their experience of water in a swimming pool, at home and on a visit to a water treatment plant. The visual artist, Constantine Gras, will lead residents on a unique artistic and environmental journey. This will culminate in a gallery installation and photo collage representing three stages of a water life cycle. Short films and related events will reflect on how we use water in the context of urban pressures and climate change.
Water Works is funded by Brent Council and Western Wedge.
Western Wedge is a partnership between seven local authorities in West London, supported by the Arts Council England.
Constantine Gras is the lead artist for Water – Way of Life – an arts, environmental and educational project telling the West London Story for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
The exhibition will then be shown at the Kew Bridge Steam Museum from 3 to 31 July 2010.
