Sculpture @Bathers is a project that celebrates the unique character of Western Australian sculpture.
The Home Grown nature of this exhibition will identify and show case the studio works of a generation of sculptors whose work has only recently come to prominence through the advent of Public Art.
The exhibition aims to place the sculptors and their practice front and centre in what is the most exiting spectacular venue.
Set against the historic background of the West End of Fremantle and the Indian Ocean it will reclaim an important space for artists in Fremantle not seen since the days of the Fremantle studios of the 70’s and 80’s.
The representation of sculptors spans the generations and the “coming together” is motivated by a common purpose, goodwill and camaraderie.
It will give the public the opportunity to see and understand the story that is Western Australian Sculpture, a story told by the artists unmediated by external priorities.
The artists have an open brief to make works that best represent them and that where possible take into account the location.
Whilst most of the works will be outdoors
some will be displayed in the Kidogo Arthouse Gallery
The venue has as all the amenities including public transport and the wider Fremantle experience at its doorstep
