Wandering Stars

Wednesday 26th of May to Sunday 6th of June
by Favs (follow)

When you look up at night, the stars and sky contain ancient, unifying stories. For Wandering Stars, those lessons materialise on the Birrarung (Yarra River) as an undulating, over 200-metre-long, glowing eel skeleton.

The installation illuminates the eel’s astonishing migratory journey from local inland waterways to the deepest depths of the Coral Sea and features an enigmatic soundscape; a full lunar cycle of 28 incandescent moons rising from the river; tangles of glowing glass eels; and hundreds of floating lanterns made by the community, under the supervision of Liverpool’s internationally exhibited, public-art makers The Lantern Company.

As you wander along riverbanks with family and friends - feasting on fire-roasted snacks from Rising’s kitchens in Birrarung Marr - you’ll connect with First Peoples' knowledge of the land, sea, sky and river on which we all live.

Part of Rising.
