I WAS HERE

Art Almanac - - WHAT'S ON -

Fre­man­tle Arts Cen­tre Un­til 16 Septem­ber, 2017 West­ern Aus­tralia

Cu­rated by Anna Louise Richard­son, ‘I WAS HERE’ com­prises pho­to­graphic and sculp­tural works re­flect­ing on the con­tin­ual re­mak­ing of his­tory and our re­la­tion­ship to the past. Seven artists tackle fact, fic­tion, the for­got­ten and imag­ined; from buried vil­lages to false nar­ra­tives, dis­con­nec­tion to land to the un­map­ping of land­marks and pin­hole images of re­placed his­tor­i­cal icons to peep­holes con­tain­ing mi­cro uni­verses and their dystopic fu­tures.

Artists in­clude Tom Buck­land, Wanda Gille­spie, Kate McMil­lan, Yhon­nie Scarce, Alex Se­ton, Amy Spiers and Robyn Stacey.
