ABOUT THE ARTIST
Janet Carter’s practice embraces a range of practices and forms, including drawing, sculpture, performance, new media and installations. Since her involvement the Proximity Festival in 2012, she has been focused on creating collaborative, non-gallery based, transient participatory works that are concerned with building resilience in an increasingly precarious world. Her current work is concerned with unravelling conceptions around gender, sexuality, desire and embodied identity, with regard to how they impact vulnerable minorities.

No Fixed Address

Taking up themes of resilience, adaptation and displacement, No Fixed Address is a collaborative project between Perth contemporary artists, filmmakers and the St Pat’s community, based in Fremantle’s East End.

The East End of Fremantle is an area undergoing rapid gentrification. At the centre of this changing landscape sits St Patrick’s Community Support Centre (St Pat’s), an NGO, which for the past 40 years has supported those who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness.

Developed over the past year, No Fixed Address explores survival tactics, rituals and ways of moving within and occupying public space as strategies to subvert environmental and economic precarity.

Unfolding as a series of workshops, public events, installations, film works and an exhibition at DADAA Fremantle, No Fixed Address responds to the social and built environments of this radically changing part of Fremantle.

Artists | Janet Carter, Olga Cironis, Hannan Jones, Tanya Lee, Lincoln Mackinnon, Mike Moshos, Rebecca Riggs-Bennett, Susan Roux, and Wade Taylor.
In collaboration with | Sun McIntyre, Tony Borg, Adrian Maximiw, The Starlight Hotel Choir, and St Pat’s staff and community.
