Noosa Regional Gallery presents Floating Land: Point to Point, an outdoor art experience between two iconic Noosa sites – Boreen Point and Noosa National Park. From the serene shores of Lake Cootharaba at Boreen Point to the rocky outcrops of Noosa National Park and several spaces in between, visitors will be invited to experience thoughtful, challenging and environmentally aware works that engage sensitively with these special and spectacular spaces.
Noosa National Park’s secluded coves, dramatic coastlines and meandering walking tracks will provide a diversity of backdrops for the thought-provoking, temporary installations of Floating Land 2019.
The Lake Cootharaba foreshore at Boreen Point will host multiple standalone installations alongside a curated trail of ephemeral works by multiple artists. The tranquillity of Boreen Point and its close-knit community lends itself to quiet and reflective works, coupled with opportunities for artists and audiences to engage with one another in organised and informal ways.
Floating Land will also feature affiliated presentations at other sites, including close to Noosa Regional Gallery in Tewantin, which will host an exhibition prior to and during the event.
Floating Land 2019 pays homage to local artist and Floating Land 2009 participant, the late Sue Coburn, whose work Sails (pictured) is the official image for the event.
Entry to the event is free.
