Art Adrift is the culmination of two dynamic projects that were seeded in the middle of the Indian Ocean on the Cocos Keeling Islands and Christmas Island. This project has now grown to collaborate with West Australian artists to create the 2013 festival exhibition. Art Adrift is wholeheartedly inspired by the sea and was created to link communities that live on the coast whose lives are deeply connected to the oceans ebb and flow. The project is a catalyst to explore different regions nautical culture; to collect, construct, create and become immersed in the rich seafaring history of the coast, with Fremantle being it’s next port of call.

Through the art forms of this project both artists and onlookers have the opportunity to experience the integral connections between the ocean, our culture and local identity. The creation of artworks that float and sculpted vessel forms that embody life adrift on the sea becomes the ultimate way to capture this. The finished body of floating artworks will be dramatically installed in Fishing Boat Harbour, taking pride of place amongst the docks, showcased by the sea and easily accessible to all onlookers during the Fremantle Festival. A fleet of exquisite sculpted vessels will form part of an adjoining exhibition on land at KIDOGO Arthouse and a captivating series of photographic images will encircle the sculptural vessels and become the watery backdrop for the exhibition.

The breathtaking exhibition of these combined works offers an uplifting and playful insight into our passion for the sea and a unique intimate maritime journey unlike anything previously experienced. Art Adrift exposes a rich and accessible theme that any coastal dweller or ocean lover can relate to, inspiring the exchange of maritime experiences and allowing audiences a visual voyage they can immerse themselves in and be swept away by oceanic tales.
