... inside the Maritime Museum of Tasmania  

... meander, yield and flow with the fluid poetic of water ...

WaterWitch : Before encountering the figurehead of the whaling vessel Waterwitch, you pass through her siren song played live by Duo Antiqua accompanied by performative drawing and improvised readings from the Liquid Language library. 


Liquid Language :  Opening myriad perspectives on water through collected writings from across the world and through time + local zine publications and a cosy place to sit and read.

Reimagining the Ocean :  Performative readings from the Liquid Language library and music played live by Duo Antiqua in dialogue with artists works in the exhibition Re-imagining the Ocean.
