Femme

 

Fremantle’s PS ART SPACE in Pakenham Street is showing Femme, an art exhibition featuring single works made together by photographer Natasja Kremers and illustrator Angela Mitchell.

The printed and painted artworks share gritty textural photography intertwined with delicate illustration in coloured and metallic paint. Themes of femininity, fashion, flora and fauna are explored throughout the 21 original pieces, each presenting as peculiar as they are beautiful.

A short film will premier on opening night and throughout the exhibition. It incorporates Natasja’s grainy exploration of a muse’s movement, filmed to interact with animations of Angela’s illustrations, accompanied by an original musical score by emerging Perth composer Olivia Davies.

The exhibition opens in the upstairs gallery this Friday February 9 from 6-8pm.

THE ART OF HOUSE DRAGGING

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.

Two new art exhibitions opened at Fremantle PS Art Space in Pakenham Street last night as part of the High Tide biennale.

Zweitgeist was created by Horst Kornberger and Tom Mueller, while Fathom…ing is by Simryn Gill, Ariane Plassis and Amy Perajuan-Capone.

While at the gallery do visit the Studio 37 cafe at groundlevel. Owner Tom is one of the nicest guys and best baristas in Fremantle, and the jaffles they serve are YUM!

INTRIGUING ART AT PS ART SPACE

Posted in art, city of fremantle, ps art space, Uncategorized by freoview on October 13, 2017

 

 

There is an intriguing art exhibition by Gwenael Velge on at PS Art Space in Pakenham Street in Fremantle.

The show is excellent and well worth a visit, although I have no idea what it is about.

Simulation/Simulcra/Sisyphus is a show of aerial photographs of containers in port and installations; local landscapes-reality-meaning.

There are futuristic-looking boxes and CD disks, and a harness to strap on your back and you supposedly can fly away in it, maybe suggesting the aerial photos were not taken from a drone or helicopter.

It is a journey of discovery in the great huge art space, and it did not matter to me that I was lost to understand the meaning of it all, as it did not seem to matter.

Go and have a look for yourselves and let me know what you thought of it!

GREAT ART REVIEW FOR TESCHENDORFF FREO SHOW

Posted in art, city of fremantle, culture, ps art space, Uncategorized by freoview on August 5, 2017

 

 

Nice to see that the West Australian art critic William Yeoman agrees with me about REMNANTS, the excellent John Teschendorff exhibition at Fremantle’s PS Art Space.

Yeoman wites in today’s West that The artist has used the History of Ideas project, as the exhibition catalogue tells us, to examine  aspects of border conflict, war, religious bigotry, democratic process and guilt.

But we encounter art first with our senses. In that respect Remnants is quite simply an astonishingly beautiful exhibition from one of our greatest practitioners in any medium.

Read The West for Yeoman’s full review of the exhibition.

The show is on at PSAS in Pakenham Street till the end of August. Don’t mis it. It’s outstanding!

SUBLIME TESCHENDORFF ART AT PS ART SPACE

Posted in art, city of fremantle, exhibition, ps art space, Uncategorized by freoview on August 1, 2017

 

 

John Teschendorff’s show REMNANTS at Fremantle PS Art Space in Pakenham Street is outstanding and should not be missed.

The History of Ideas Project 1997-2017 is an exhibition of abstract works that examine aspects of border conflict, war, religious bigotry, democratic process&guilt….even terror, torture and death are interrogated beneath deceptively seductive abstract surfaces.

There are also collaborative works with Annette Seeman and Stephen Spurrier in the show.

I was quite overwhelmed by the intensity and deep mood of the artworks and the very high painterly quality of them.

Teschendorff’s art has been widely collected by all major galleries in Australia and I hope they’ll purchase a few more work from this exhibition.

The exhibitions is open till August 26. If you don’t see another exhibition this year, make sure not to miss this one. It’s one of the best art exhibitions I have seen for years. It’s sublime!

….and while at PSAS hop in at my mate Tom’s Studio 37 cafe for great coffee and food.
