Maschi Fontana: Rising Lotus

Let globe-traversing creative collaboration Maschi Fontana (Swiss-Australian artists Tom Muller and Jean-Thomas Vannotti) lead you to the mystical realm of the Higher Self. Drawing on science fiction, the occult and popular culture, this multisensory collection of large-scale outdoor sculpture, performance, print-based works and contemporary ambient music forms an intriguing created world where forces hidden and exposed collide in the galleries and grounds of Fremantle Arts Centre.

Also on view is Frozen in Time by Canadian artist Natalie Daoust, featuring beautiful and disarming photography shot in Switzerland.

It has since been a women’s home, a naval base during WW1 and WW2 and a technical college before opening as Fremantle Arts Centre in 1972.

The Fremantle CAT Bus stops at Fremantle Acquatic Centre on Ord Street, which is a 100m walk from Fremantle Arts Centre.
