2018-09-08 00:00:00 2018-09-17 00:00:00 Australia/Brisbane Co-MMotion: Single File Single File is a temporary artwork trying to turn the tide. Made up of several filing cabinets mounted on the bank of the Brisbane River, artist Warraba Weatherall’s installation explores notions of buoyancy within the city’s landscape. Strategically placed near the cultural precinct, Weatherall questions the Museum as a disciplinary institution where its archives reaffirm the rhetoric of colonialism. As an institution which retains a large collection of Indigenous artefacts and ancestral human remains, western interpretations render Indigenous cultures as ‘knowable’ and ‘possessable’. The artwork aims to encourage conversations around cultural repatriation. Presented as part of Co-MMotion, Brisbane City Council’s 2018 Temporary Art Program, produced by people+artist+place. This installation is best viewed at low tide. Expected low tides during the installation period are as follows: Saturday 8 September: 2.55pm Sunday 9 September: 3.44pm Monday 10 September: 4.30pm Tuesday 11 September: 5.15pm Wednesday 12 September: 5.56pm Thursday 13 September: 6.38pm Friday 14 September: 7.21pm Saturday 15 September: 7.31am and 8.08pm Sunday 16 September: 8.11am and 9.02pm Brisbane
