Treatment III: Artist talk + site visit with Linda Tegg
Join artist Linda Tegg in-conversation with Treatment's curators and the landscape architects contracted to transform the vacant lot which currently hosts her work Tending a line in the year of the rabbit.
Tending a line in the year of the rabbit responds to the boundary condition produced by two rows of concrete sleepers. No longer serving their original purpose, the linear arrangement now hosts life — the space between these rows has been transformed to support a species-rich plant community.
While the work can be viewed any time of day from 17 March - 28 April, this is one of the few sessions that will allow visitors to enter the site and walk around the work. All are welcome — registration is free, but essential to attend. Please meet us at the location at the corner of Hudson Rd and Booker St, Spotswood - across the road from Scienceworks Museum.
Treatment III is the third iteration of a public art project that celebrates the histories, technologies and communities of Melbourne’s West.
