Little Egret Bridge to Japan
An international art collaboration between elderly residents in Hobart and Keisen, Japan.
It began as a study of Goulds lagoon, in Hobart, and evolved into an exhibition spanning 2 countries and 4 generations.
Visiting the lagoon was a way of exploring the local environment and triggering memories from the past. School students, primary and secondary worked alongside residents of Strathglen Aged care Facility. Other community members,from politicians, to musicians, council members, varied community groups and even international guests also joined in.
This project focused on paper made objects, ranging from sculptural egrets, photography, rice paper bowls, exquisite origami from our Japanese collaborators and a 3m x 3m large paper mosaic of Mt Fuji.
