Didactic Tools

Didactic Tools features five artists responding to the current explosion of instructional and educational culture, from YouTube tutorials and TEDx to the proliferation of data visualization, analytics, digital whistleblowing and new political movements. The multidisciplinary ensemble bring together performance, visual art, sound and media works with biological science and architectural practice. Through collective research, sharing tools and conducting experiments in peer-to-peer education, the artists have drawn lines between the vast sub-cultures in which digital teaching and learning now thrive. Didactic Tools presents five artists embracing the challenge of work with knowledge in art, each considering how the transference of the work's 'source code' – its information, intention, meaning or provocation – might resonate with its evocative qualities. This project has been convened by Perth-based company Hydra Poesis and features new work by artists Kynan Tan (WA/NSW), Sam Fox (WA), Tarsh Bates (WA), Keg de Souza (NSW) and Jake Oorloff (Sri Lanka). Opening Friday 20 November 6.30 pm. Fremantle Arts Centre is operated by the City of Fremantle.

'AS IS' Ross Potter Artist Exhibition

‘AS IS’ - Artist captures Fremantle's creative industries Through illustration, Potter’s latest body of work explores the impact of the creative world on Fremantle’s heritage buildings. The ‘AS IS’ collection highlights the power of these creative alterations and how they can transform a structure’s identity. ‘AS IS’ is Potter’s largest exhibition to date, with his works reaching a new, much larger scale than his previous exhibitions. His unique treatment of his subject allows a more intimate glimpse into the structure’s character and history. Dr Brad Pettitt, Mayor of Fremantle, will be officially opening Potter’s exhibition at 6pm on Friday November 13th at the Moores Building in Fremantle. Dr Pettitt describes Potter’s work: “Ross Potter is an extraordinary Fremantle talent. Ross has produced a stunning range of wonderfully detailed renderings of Fremantle’s historic and character filled buildings, as well as some iconic Fremantle characters. But not only does Ross create beautiful, original artworks but his works, of exquisite detail, have also added to my love of Fremantle as a special place.” Potter is a resident artist at PS Art Space on Pakenham Street, Fremantle, where he works full time. Tom Muller, renowned artist and Curator of PS Art Space, says of the upcoming exhibition: “The artists rigorous and time consuming approach to image making is informed by his love for detail and his extraordinary capacity to capture and record specific details about the site. His preferred medium, graphite, has the ability to impress the archival paper with a depth and texture that is not usually accessible, and can thus provide a “living” representation of the subject matter. At times, the image literally feels like it is peeling off the page.” Potter will be hosting an ‘Artist Talk’ in the gallery on Saturday November 21st at 1pm. He will be discussing the exhibition, his process and the subjects of his works. ‘AS IS’ opens on Friday November 13 at 6pm at the Moores Building in Fremantle. The exhibition runs November 14 – 22, 10am-4pm. Please contact Ross Potter for more information: 0402 377 221, or
