Cassandra has been bathing since before birth, in the womb. She believes bath-derived wisdom can have profound impacts on the wellbeing of individuals and communities. Her current work is a slow-burn, 10-year project, Water Life Bath House (WLBH). WLBH is envisaged as a bath-house-cum-community-art-space in Melbourne, set to be launched in the Winter Solstice of 2028. WLBH is informed by capsule projects, and intensive bath-related research. ‘Bath objects’, the current capsule project, is a limited series of small bronze, bubbly, mixed media sculptures available for rent or purchase, that find belonging in personal or private bathing spaces. (The launch of 'Bath Objects' for rent, rent-to-buy, or purchase will take place in Winter, 2018.) Using sculpture, writing, installation, and gesture, Cassandra kindles sensitivity to space, time and material to encourage gently expansive modes of being in herself and others. She is part of art collectives While The Hour and Council of SVOO. facebook.com/councilofsvoo whilethehour.wordpress.com testing-grounds.com.au/case-studies Personal CV
The Water Life Bath House, a bath-house opening in Melbourne on the Winter Solstice 2028, is in the world - in the making! This exhibition is a first gesture: Water Life Bath House ~ Bathing objects offers hand-scale bronze sculptures as an imagination-aid and a weighty presence into private bathing life. The opening is Thursday 7 june 6-8pm. I'll also be sitting the gallery as an a Bath Worker every Wed and Sun of the exhibition from 3-30 June, to open the boxes up for interested folk and discuss bathing. It'd be lovely to see you, hold some sculptures and talk bathing.

Water Life Bath House imaginatively exists on the lands of Naarm, in the Kulin nation. It pays its respects to the Wathaurong, Djadjawurung, Taungurong, Woiworung and Boonwurrung peoples, and to their elders past, present and future. Sovereignty was never ceded, and you are the traditional owners of these lands.
