If you are like us and leave things until the last minute, you still have until tomorrow night to check out the very cool artworks of High Tide 17. You can get involved and design your own nautical flags with messages fit for 2100 or become a citizen of the Commonwealth of New Bayswater with your own passport, a fun little island set up by Jessee Lee Johns in the flooded Princess Chambers’ basement (4-6pm today and tomorrow).
If you haven’t heard about High Tide – here the description by the organisers: “High Tide is the first incarnation of the Fremantle Biennale, a unique event, hosting the best in site-responsive art. Situated in new and found sites around the west end of Fremantle, High Tide presents invited local and international artists who respond to and work with the rich landscape that is the tapestry of Fremantle. The 2017 edition of High Tide is sited at the iconic Round House, the Whalers Tunnel, High St and Mall, Cliff St, Mouat St, the Port Authority Building, Bathers Bay, PS Art Space, The University of Notre Dame, The WA Maritime Museum, The Lysaght Atrium (Quest Fremantle), J-Shed,Blank Space (Mills Record Store), and the Princess Chambers Basement (Kakulas Sister).”
Here a few snaps from earlier today (these don’t even show half of the artworks on show).
