Since my enticing preview of laredo 002 last September, this intervention happened (!) on 15 March 2021. Its documentation has just been completed.

Intervention statement: laredo 002


laredo 002 took place at the abandoned 1930s Back Beach Salt Baths. The location may be remembered as "a great folly" by long-term residents of the regional town of Bunbury / Geographe Bay on the Indian Ocean, but - as a relative newcomer to the area - I revel in its potential as a magical site for temporary art.
