"Accept an invitation into their homes – a sprawling meditation on the multiplicity of our creative minds, Home Open: Fremantle Artists and their Collections reflects the diversity and energy of our artists and their surroundings. Artists create environments that reflect who they are and what they make.
With an eye for design and attention to detail, they collect furniture, art, objects and artifacts that inspire and motivate. Just as these collections tell the story of the artist, and provide clues as to their art practice and their lifestyle, each object has a tale of its own.
How a painting, an item of furniture, or a collection of rocks came into someone’s life becomes as important as the object itself. Where did it come from, and why is it important?
A range of painters, sculptors, street artists, gallerists, printmakers, textile artists, photographers and more bring together their private memorabilia in a very personal exhibition at FAC.
A generous exhibition, detailed installations reflect the distinctions between generations and artistic practices. From immaculate displays of perfectly restored furniture, to chaotic hangs with artwork piling the walls, floors and ceilings, these rich and textured displays invite audiences into the homes of the artists who have made Fremantle what it is today."
