Arcs d’Éllipses

Felice Varini (FRA/SUI)

World-renowned artist Felice Varini’s installation, Arcs d’Éllipses spans 800 meters of High Street, and is custom designed to cascade from the Round House to the Town Hall. This monumental artwork will be created over the course of a month and will require a small army of assistants, volunteers and specialised equipment.

Arcs d’Éllipses will emerge for the first time Saturday 28 October as the work is sequentially applied to over twenty-five heritage listed buildings within Fremantle’s historic West End precinct. This will be Varini’s first major commission in Australia and his largest in the Southern Hemisphere. Don’t miss Varini’s keynote talk for High Tide on Sunday 29 October, 2pm at the Hub.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding body and advisory body. Arcs d’Éllipses is supported by the State Government through the Department of Culture and the Arts. This project is generously supported by Mary Hill in memory of the late Chris Hill, The University of Notre Dame, Quest Fremantle and the City of Fremantle.
