Weston Creek was once meandering wetlands, rich with reeds, insects and birds. Today, it is an obscure polluted waterway, considered by many to be ugly, even dangerous. ‘On Beauty’ re-considers Weston Creek, presenting a collaborative exploration of this hard-used waterway as a site of inspiration. Local residents joined artist Kirsten Wehner to walk the creek’s concreted drain, exploring the waterway’s story, trying to look anew and direct printing to record experiences of beauty. Collaged into a collective work, impressions of algae patterns, rock colours, leaf shapes and waterbug journeys reimagine this unloved landscape as a space for connection, restoration and care.
