ARTSOURCE OLD CUSTOMS HOUSE, Fremantle Western Australia
Opened: Saturday 14th July, 5-8pm.
Exhibition continued: 15th - 29th July, Thurs-Sun 11am-5pm.
An exhibition of new work inspired by hope and intrepid curiosity in the High Arctic.
A vault of seeds, a zeppelin headed north, a rocket to Mars. All in the irrationally misplaced weather, even the most unlikely experiments have a basis in hope.
This Is How We Walk on the Moon explores earnest human endeavour and hope amid uncertainty, inspired by my recent time in Svalbard and Greenland in the High Arctic. Drawing upon the heroic spirit of cooperation that defines the polar regions, sweetly absurd gestures will suggest that collective hard work, communication, curiosity, and bravery are essential for resilience and adaptation.
