No Fixed Address | Object for Anti-Gentrification

Object for anti-gentrification is a temporary public artwork presented as a part of DADAA’s No Fixed Address project, a year-long collaboration with Perth contemporary artists and the community from St Patrick’s Community Support Centre, a NGO in Fremantle’s East End which supports those who are experiencing homelessness.

Developed by artist Tanya Lee, Object for anti-gentrification reflects on the ways that Queen Victoria Street in the East End is rapidly gentrifying around the St Pat’s hub.

Public art’s role in the gentrification of public spaces is often a questionable one, masking the way that spaces are demarcated for certain communities while displacing and excluding others. Public art structures can act as both territorial stakes in the ground and also decoys which draw attention way from the lack of inclusivity urban redevelopment can usher in. 

As St Pat’s YIMBY (Yes In My Backyard!) movement champions, social housing is important for every city, every new development and every community. 

Based on duck hunting blinds and bunkers, tactics the artist learned from the St Pat’s community, and in opposition to many of the CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) principles employed by city councils, this artwork playfully antagonises the dynamics of the changing streetscape. 

Find, follow and step into the bunker to survey Queen Victoria Street and its users.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Tanya Lee is a Western Australian artist based in Perth. Her cross-disciplinary practice works across sculpture, performance and drawing. Lee’s often-humorous work constructs incongruous, farcical and even futile narratives that subvert the protocols and politics of every day social environments.

Lee’s studies included a year as a visiting scholar at the École Nationale Supérieur d’Art de Dijon (ENSAD) in Dijon, France, before completing her MA in Visual Art at Curtin University of Technology in 2009. 

No Fixed Address is presented in partnership with St Patrick’s Community Support Centre. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

Cheeky Dogs | Opening Night

Camp dogs, town dogs, fast dogs, playful dogs, long-legged dogs, short-tailed dogs, long-snouted dogs, short-eared dogs, happy dogs, and of course dangerous or Cheeky Dogs. Dion Beasley’s exhibition has opened and we’re celebrating with a party!

Dion Beasley is an Alywarr artist who lives in Tennant Creek. His artwork and Cheeky Dogs books are renowned worldwide, and in 2019 he was the recipient of the Australia Council for the Arts’ inaugural National Arts and Disability Award for an Emerging Artist. 

Beasley’s art and his award-winning books portray in vivid detail his life in the Northern Territory and the dogs that are characteristic of many remote communities. Presented by Perth Festival and DADAA in association with Salon Art Projects, this exhibition of prints and drawings captures Beasley’s fascination with these dogs and his distinct approach to mapping place.

To be opened by Lee-Ann Tjunypa Buckskin, Deputy Chair, Australia Council Board
