Water[shed] an exhibition conceived by OUTSIDE THE BOX / Earth Arts Rights and presented in collaboration with Bett Gallery to support the Restore Pedder campaign.
50 national and international artists (one for each year since Lake Pedder was lost) have accepted an invitation to make work that explores the notions of watershed, ecosystem restoration, re-wilding, loss, grief, hope and of course to celebrate the original Lake Pedder.
In the summer of 2021-22 it will be 50 years since Lake Pedder was flooded by a Hydro-Electric Power Scheme. This jewel of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, with its iconic wide, pink quartzite beach was swallowed up when more than 240 square kilometres of Tasmania’s wilderness drowned. The art and imagery created at the time continues to capture our imagination. The campaign to restore Lake Pedder is a powerful symbol of hope in increasingly troubling times.
