THE ART OF HOUSE DRAGGING

Posted in art, city of fremantle, culture, ps art space, Uncategorized by freoview on January 22, 2018

 

ps 4

 

The Migratory Projects-House Drag/Maquette 2018 exhibition at Fremantle’s PS Art Space in Pakenham Street made me wonder what art is, so I let artists Andrew Sunley Smith and Daniel Egger explain the reasons for dragging a house behind cars.

This iteration of the three part project functions as an abstracted full size 1:1 sacle framework/house/maquette, exhibited as a working open form, along with a series of process related components, comprising of films, a specially created and restored full size vehicle, plus a series of sculptural objects, tools/equipment, print works, photographs and drawings-the objective of which is to further display, explore and momentarily situate the projects intent and scope, pulling focus toward its logistic, psychological(often silent) poetics and visceral realities.

The show is on till February 14 Tuesday-Friday 10am to 4pm and Saturdays 10am-2pm.

LITTLE GREEN BEAR AT LITTLE SPACE

Little Green Bear

 

There is a lovely event at the No4  LITTLE SPACE studio of Fremantle’s J SHED at Bathers Beach this Sunday from 1-4pm.

Enter from Fleet Street or walk through the Whalers Tunnel.

Join January and February as they embark on an epic adventure that takes them to strange new places and introduces them to wonderful new friends. Will they ever find December… or will their friend be lost forever?

Fremantle Author and Illustrator Chrissy Haywood of Little Green Bear Publishing invites you to an afternoon of community fun at the J-shed in Fremantle. We are celebrating the long-awaited arrival of “Finding Summer’ (a delightful tale of friendship and adventure) and we would love for you to join us!

Bring your picnic blanket and come and hang-out with us for an afternoon of celebrating shared literacy. There will be free kids activities, rock painting (as part of the WA ROCKS hide-and-seek craze), an art display of how the book was developed and a reading by the Author. And for those who need a quick cool off, the beach is right next door to the venue.

Little Green Bear Publishing have organised a free seed planting workshop with Lara from Plants For Friends and we’ll be expecting a visit from our mates at Coco Lycious to provide us with delicious, vegan ice-creams to top off the summer fun!

DAHL’S WORLD PREMIERE AT SPARE PARTS THEATRE

Posted in art, children, city of fremantle, culture, Uncategorized by freoview on January 6, 2018

 

 

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre returns home to their Short Street theatre in Fremantle for the summer holidays with the world premiere of Roald Dahl’s The Twits.

The new razztwizzling adaption of Roald Dahl’s very irreverent classic opens on January 8 and will run till January 27.

The world premiere season of Dahl’s jumpswiffling comedy of two grizzly old grunions is a super high energy combination of storytelling, puppetry and physical theatre.

The Twits takes you into the world of grumpy old couple, Mrs and Mrs Twit who haven’t had a good thought or done a kind thing in years. They like nothing more than dreaming up terrible tricks to play on each other. They are bound to put a grizzly grin on your face!
