Life of Water

THE WATER CYCLE AND LIFE CYCLE ARE ONE

Curated by Miche and Flora of Touchstones, LIFE OF WATER is a one-day convivial performative installation that honours the City of Venice. In collaboration with farmers, glass-makers, chefs, activist-researchers and winemakers we offer a taste of the artisan through water, salt and soil.

As part of our research residency in Venice, we encountered people who are passionate about the city’s diverse cultures of artisan living, and who are campaigning to protect the delicate ecology of Venice, its hinterland of food gardens and the wider salt marshes of the lagoon.

As ‘amici d'acqua’ caring for the life of water, we are all working in ways that respect the essential interconnections between nature and culture. Through convivial and contemplative rituals, LIFE OF WATER is a tribute to the artful, spiritual and political dimensions of ecological living.
