As soon as I arrived at The Farm, I started walking the grounds and exploring the Margaret River area and coastline. The Farm itself struck me for its concave shape, its location relative to the higher grounds all around, and the feeling it emanated as a vessel, a bowl. Immediately, I sensed the presence of water, not only the visible bodies of water in The Farm – the spring, the stream, the dam – but the invisible streams flowing under The Farm’s surface. The thought of these streams merging into rivers, subterranean and overland, was a joyous one that reached a crescendo as I imagined all this water flowing elegantly into the ocean.

Danae Stratou


Danae Stratou was born in Athens, Greece. She studied Fine Arts and specialised in sculpture and installation at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London (1983–1988). She taught as Adjunct Professor at the Post-Graduate Programme of the Athens School of Fine Arts (2007–2013). Her work consists of large-scale site-specific art installations and audio-visual environments. She uses a variety of media, ranging from digital and audio technology, video, photography to metal and natural materials and elements. Stratou uses a minimal, geometric visual language and engages in contemporary issues such as the climate crisis, migration, life in contemporary cities, population growth, our relation to the environment, as well as political and social tensions worldwide. Since 1997, she has been featured regularly in major solo and group exhibitions internationally.
