Some of the artworks of the Undercurrent Fremantle Biennale are still standing, and this one is on the boardwalk at the Fishing Boat Harbour. The distorted reflection makes the back of Little Creatures look more like the Sydney Opera House.

FREMANTLE DRIVERS SEEING RED

Posted in cars, city of fremantle, festivals, Fremantle Biennale, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on November 23, 2019

 

 

One of the final events of the Undercurrent Fremantle Biennale 2019 was a tour of red-coloured cars through the streets of Fremantle on Saturday at lunch time.

They gathered at the Beach Street carpark where I took these photos.

The Biennale ends with a party on the deck of the Maritime Museum this Sunday from 5pm. See you there!

Artists from the Undercurrent Fremantle Biennale have been painting the town red, all the way from South Beach to Fremantle Port.

CY O’Connor is seeing red on Victoria Quay with the lawn below his statue all red and even a red pool ball put on his shoulder.

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!

It is only on tonight and tomorrow night, and the weather is a lot better than yesterday, so come see WATER LICHT on the Fremantle Esplanade at 7.30 this evening.

It is an artwork by Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde and is an event of the Undercurrent Fremantle Biennale.

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.
