The Weight of Light – Meagan Streader



In The Weight of Light, Brisbane artist Meagan Streader transforms one of Brisbane’s most important historical sites with an immersive public art installation. The Spring Hill Reservoir, formerly a source of water for Brisbane, will be traced in light, highlighting the architectural features of the fascinating space.

Descending the stairs into the reservoir and walking under and through lines of light carefully mapped by wire, visitors will be immersed in a hypnotic sense of wonder that draws the eye to the history of this important site while reinterpreting and extending its boundaries. Stretched across space, wrapped around architectural features and crafting new shapes and spaces in the air, Meagan’s wire creates pathways through familiar locales, inviting visitors to experience the space in a new way.

Exhibited nationally and internationally, Meagan’s work reflects the minimalist art of the Light and Space movement and reveals the pervasive role of light in governing physical and social navigations of fabricated spaces. Pushing the limits of light within sculpture and installation, she manipulates, reinterprets and extends upon the boundaries of constructed spaces. Through site-specific interventions, her multidimensional use of light re-orientates the viewer’s relationship to the existing architecture and scale of space.
