Doing One Thing At A Time

Doing One Thing at a Time is a performance and installation, occurring and displayed within The 1897 Window Gallery. Over two months Fiz Eustance will spend an hour or more every day within the gallery space (which will be set up as a studio), crocheting. When Fiz is not within the gallery the space will be on display in its studio form, and viewers will be able to watch as the crocheted object gradually evolves. This work is an attempt to spend time consciously, to escape from the idea that we must multitask in order to be productive, and to…

#MyFreoStory is your Freo story

We all have a Freo story. From the locals raised in the port city, to the live music lovers or Sunday brunch devotees on the strip, locals and visitors alike have a story to share about Freo. And so #MyFreoStory video competition was born. In early 2016, the #MyFreoStory competition was launched to encourage people to tell their own Freo story, with 40 very unique and heartfelt videos submitted. This included a day in the life of local Freo dog, following a unicyclist’s journey around town to the home of WA Circus, watching a time-lapse artist weave a large red basket around themselves in prominent Fremantle landmarks and Freo-inspired sea shanty “Fremantle, The Pride of WA”.  After much deliberation, 9 entries were shortlisted to determine the overall winner, Shakey’s Story. The first #MyFreoStory winning entry by Oliver Oldroyd and Stevie James Smith depicted the moving true story of a local artist and his strong connection to the Freo art scene and local music legend Bon Scott. We asked the producer Oliver Oldroyd what motivated him and his cousin to enter “We love living here in Freo. There's such a good creative vibe and it's great to be part of it. We love making films and it was also important for us to get Shakey’s name out there and get him recognised for the talented artist he is.” Another entry by a 16 year old student from Perth Modern School, Radheya Jegatheva was “My Journey Through Freo”, voted on the youtube.com/fremantlestory as the best film in our people’s choice category. This young film maker gave us a view of all the things he loves in Freo by filming on his mum’s iPhone. We asked Radheya what motivated him to enter “A bit of everything to be honest, but one of the main messages that I wanted to convey through my video was that Freo is a city that can cater for all sorts of people of all ages - and that there was so much to do and so much to see.” After viewing all of last year’s great films we couldn’t get enough, so in late March we launched the second 2017 #MyFreoStory video competition and are waiting in anticipation for the new stories. If you want to check out last year’s films or submit your own #MyFreoStory video visit fremantlestory.com.au/myfreostory. Competition closes 22 May 2017.
