A Day In the Life

The Subterranean SALA Exhibition merges European fairy tales with the local environment, causing the surrounds to warp and change.  Some of the murals feature the same characters.  Here is a day in the life of the Seven Dwarfs, while Snow White is left alone with her wicked step-mother…  accompanying electronic sound pieces by chalkwhitehands include A Quality of Strangeness and Dark Significance.

The Dwarfs begin their day at Patritti Wines and Cellar Door, buying supplies for lunch.  They continue to the Oaklands Park Railway Station, to catch a train to the southern suburbs.

The Seven Dwarfs walk past the old flying fox on Perry Barr Road, that carted rocks to the old Portland Cement Works/Adelaide Brighton Cement from the Reynella Quarry.  Rows of concrete footings are all that remain.  Flying Fox image courtesy of the State Library of South Australia: http://images.slsa.sa.gov.au/mpcimg/60250/B60068.htm

The Seven Dwarfs then walk to work at the Worthing Mine.  The Worthing Mine ruins are on private property but can be viewed from Brooklyn Drive at Hallett Cove.

Thanks to the Marion Historical Society and Marion Heritage Research Centre for their kind assistance.   Map of mural locations here.
