The Water Labyrinth is the first permanent Jeppe Hein artwork in Australia, commissioned from the Danish artist exclusively for Perth and the Forrest Place site. This interactive water installation is an aquatic pavilion comprising nine rooms that appear and disappear at random, surrounding visitors with walls of water emitted by ground water jets. The artwork uses storm water harvested and recycled from Forrest Place.
An interactive water sculpture created exclusively for Forrest Place, the Water Labyrinth shoots jets of water into the air creating nine rooms that disappear as quickly as they emerge. It runs daily from 8am-8pm unless the area is being used for events.
Russell Kingdom was the Project Director for the Forest Place Project, including the idea of incorporating Jeppe Hein’s work; developing the justification; and arranging procurement. Russell was also involved in key decision-making regarding the detailed integration of Jeppe’s design into the broader Forrest Place design and documentation, undertaken by other consultants.
