About the artist:
Paris based Swiss artist Felice Varini has been creating site specific works in response to architectural spaces and volumes since 1979. The complete artwork can only be seen when viewed from specific angles, otherwise the viewer will only see fragments of the overall work. For Varini it's all about your point of view. Varini takes this idea to its extremely literal iterations. From the perfect perspective his painted geometric shapes seem to float in front of your eyes.

About High Tide:
High Tide is the first incarnation of the Fremantle Biennale, a unique event hosting the best in site responsive art. Situated in and around the port of Fremantle, High Tide brings together a core group of invited local and international artists who will respond to and work with the rich landscape that is the tapestry of Fremantle. Located on the edge of the Indian Ocean, the City of Fremantle is a trade hub with an idiosyncratic and colourful history. Home to the traditional Nyoongar owners, Fremantle's European his- tory dates to 1828 with the town since clinging on to the limestone in the face of the roaring South Westerly (the Fremantle Doctor). Growing through mineral resource booms and busts, the wonderful cultural mix layered by migrant flows has laid the foundations of a creative town with a history of galleries and studios and one of the best cafe, pub and music scenes anywhere. High Tide adds to this history, filling a need for ephemeral site-specific work which responds to the transience and transitional flow of a port town.
