ARTY ANCHORS IN FREMANTLE PORT

 

 

I had an early morning stroll through Fremantle’s beautiful West End and the port and took some photos of these arty anchors, which are part of the Undercurrent Fremantle Biennale 2019.

PORT BIENNALE SIGNS OF OUR TIME

Posted in art, Fremantle Biennale, fremantle ports, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on November 8, 2019

 

 

I had a walk around Victoria Quay this morning to look at more of the Sam Bloor Billboard Project for the Fremantle Biennale 2019.

While there I bumped into my old mate John Malaga, the project supervisor of Fremantle Ports, who was watering the palm tree that is also part of the Biennale.

The container show is also on Victoria Quay and shows how much the containerisation of the ports changed the way we handle freight.

FREO COUNCIL GOT THE ANSWERS

Good to see that Fremantle Council believes that it has got all the answers to all the questions by the community, as this sign next to the temporary offices of the City of Fremantle at Fremantle Oval shows.

This is however not a community confidence marketing campaign where our elected members try to convince us they’ve got it all under control, but it is the Billboard Project art by Sam Bloor for the Fremantle Biennale. Walk around town and find the other billboards.

FREMANTLE BIENNALE ART ON SHOW

Posted in art, city of fremantle, culture, exhibition, Fremantle Biennale, Uncategorized by freoview on November 4, 2019

 

 

I had a look at a few of the Fremantle Biennale art shows around town on Sunday, so here some impressions of it.

Tom Blake is in the cellar of the Kakulas Sister building and using the ground water level to create reflections of it in a mirror.

Sleeping with the Sun is a very large ‘box’ with a lot of tiny lights by Kayako Nakashima in the wonderful space at Artsource in the former Customs House.

This evening from 7.30pm onward is your last chance to see the magic light and smoke Water Licht show by Daan Roosegaarde, which is part of the Undercurrent Fremantle Biennale at the Esplanade.

There were thousands of people watching it on Saturday mesmerised by the serene beauty of it, so don’t miss it!

LOTS OF WATER AT FREO BIENNALE WATER LICHT LAUNCH

The start of the Water Licht event on the Esplanade by Daan Roosegaarde for the Fremantle Biennale had a lot of water indeed and was more something for ducks than for people, but here some impressions of it anyway.

Hard to admit for a photographer that it looked much more spectacular than in my photos, so I might have another go at it tomorrow evening.

The FREMANTLE BIENNALE UNDERCURRENT starts this evening with an amazing show on the Esplanade from 7.15pm. The show is only on this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so don’t miss it!

Water Licht (Water Light) by Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde is a call to action on climate change and raising awareness about rising sea levels.

As a virtual flood, Waterlicht visualizes what level the water could reach if it wasn’t for human intervention. The immersive light installation creates a collective experience to share the importance of water innovation and raise awareness around rising water levels.

 

Check out all the Biennale events and exhibitions on the Facebook page and website.

FREMANTLE BILLBOARD ART PROJECT

billboard 1

 

Only two more sleeps until the FREMANTLE BIENNALE 2019 starts on Friday, so here another little teaser.

Artist Sam Bloor invites you to step inside Fremantle’s galleries and museums with his playful and ambiguous words in ‘The Billboard Project’. This series of large-scale, hand-painted signs, will be on display outside several cultural institutions and woven through the streets of Fremantle.

Sam Bloor (b 1987) is a visual artist from Perth, with a sign-writing background. His practice investigates points of contention within the designation of urban space along with perceived notions of value and labour. Bloor has exhibited both nationally and internationally in shows including, Totem In Tribute (2016) in Edinburgh, UK and the Fremantle Print Award (2016, 2018) in which he was awarded first prize.
