Walking the Merri expands on a seven-day performative walk undertaken by Rebecca Mayo and Lesley Harding in March 2013. Following the Merri Creek from its source at Heathcote Junction to its confluence with the Yarra River in Abbotsford, they traced the meanderings and human redirections of this historically significant and contested waterway.

I had the pleasure of joining Rebecca and Lesley on day 4 of the walk, which became a starting-point for a new series of lithographic works. For Trickle, Stream, Creek: Water from Three Merri Creek Sites, I applied different creek water samples onto the lithographic plate – using the lo-shu technique – to produce an image. With the properties of each water sample producing a different effect on the lithographic plate, I was able to map/document the creek in a unique and fascinating way.

Created in the context of their time, representations of the body – be they anatomical medical images or glossy fashion figures – disclose prevailing culture, religion, science and technology. Contradictions abound through the dissection and grafting of these sources.

Recycled images, words and fragments from dated and discarded texts of both scientific and religious origin – that once promised to explain our world – create an other account of life and the origin of our cosmos.
