9 February – 3 March 2024

This February 2024, we are bringing you two of Perth Festival’s most-anticipated visual arts installations over a three week festival period.

Wetland by Linda Tegg will lead the festival’s visual arts program, immersing the public in the wonders of plant communities that have been purposely juxtaposed against Carillon City’s built environment.

Developed in consultation with Balladong Whadjuk woman Vivienne Hansen, audiences will be invited to navigate the arcade, only to encounter a wetland that has quietly reclaimed the space.

As you walk through the Wetland, you’ll begin being bathed in a supernatural and immersive pink hue – and Light Event by Rebecca Baumann will emerge.

This installation will see the centre of the former food court be illuminated into an abstracted timepiece as the it changes and interacts with the sun through the application of dichroic film on Carillon City’s iconic atrium window.

This is a FREE event running for 3 weeks from Friday 9 February – Sunday 3 March 2024.
