'Of an address' is an initial response to exchanges, conversations and actions that were shared, overheard and undertaken during the artist's engagement at St Pat's and when sauntering through the East End of Fremantle. Addressing fleeting and ambiguous moments of jokes, advice and snippets of conversation are made permanent as a gesture to the people, those moments and the ever changing cityscape.

In an attempt to live somewhere in-between the cracks of visible and invisible, Of an Address is a silent negotiation offering a chance encounter, a gesture and an anonymous collaboration. 

These gestural scores will live in the existence of multiple locations - the gallery, the city, sinking into the ocean and be reflected vicariously their environment and audience.

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.
