PS Art Space is a project space and experimental platform for contemporary art. Large in scale, the two storey brick and iron building is rare as one of the most intact examples of its former use for the Fremantle Port as a major centre for trade and commerce. West Australian artists, Jo Darbyshire and Penny Coss will show new work that responds to the site with Darbyshire’s imagined relationship with the WA coast: local islands, ships in the Port and the traces of colonial life she observes in the material fabric of Fremantle. Coss imagines the landscape as a backdrop for cultural migration and the thresholds between the familiar and unfamiliar . She references geology, biology and the gravitational forces of water.
