14 – 29 July @ Artsource Old Customs House, 8 Phillimore Street, Fremantle WA ·
Presented by Amy Perejuan-Capone ·

Opening: Saturday 14th July, 5-8pm.
Exhibition continues: 15th – 29th July, Thurs-Sun 11am-5pm.
Free Workshops & Group Chat: Sundays 15th, 22nd & 29th July, 1-4pm. (RSVP recommended to amy@wilhelmwilhelm.com)

An exhibition of snowy installations by Amy Perejuan-Capone inspired by hope and intrepid curiosity in the High Arctic. A vault of seeds, a zeppelin headed north, a rocket to Mars. All in the irrationally misplaced weather, even the most unlikely experiments have a basis in hope.
Blizzards are forecast, but the shelter is warm. Come join us in the dome for a mug of hot chocolate (BYO mug!), freshly baked Norwegian seed-bread, and some dome-made dried fruit.

This is how we walk on the Moon explores earnest human endeavour and hope amid uncertainty, inspired by my recent time in Svalbard and Greenland in the High Arctic. Drawing upon the heroic spirit of cooperation that defines the polar regions, sweetly absurd gestures will suggest that collective hard work, communication, curiosity, and bravery are essential for resilience and adaptation.

FREE EVENTS:
-Ongoing durational performance, blizzard, and quality chats.
-Daily seed-bread baking and fruit preservation at 11am. Come learn how to make Norwegian ‘knekkebrød’!
-Workshop & Group Chat, Sundays 1-4pm. July 15th, 22nd & 29th .
Part barn-raising, part artist-talk, together we will build our own geodesic dome (great for greenhouses and chicken coops!). Afterwards we will chill and drink tea in the dome while Amy discusses the Arctic inspirations (and climate-anxieties) behind the exhibition. Suitable for ages 14+. Registration recommended, but walk-ins welcome subject to capacity. To register: RSVP to amy@wilhelmwilhelm.com
