Perhaps Western Australia’s longest artwork, a 500-metre walkable painted pathway will unfold in November, tracing the shoreline of the Derbarl Yerrigan, connecting Fremantle’s Traffic Bridge and the Stirling Bridge.
In their most ambitious project to date, Orange Path is brought to life by thirteen leading Australian and international artists of the AC4CA collective. A legacy artwork commissioned by the Fremantle Biennale, Orange Path is the first public artwork in WA to cross local government boundaries and it reminds us that our rivers connect us all.
Using a limited palette of only three colours, each artist has designed a 40-metre stretch of the path. AC4CA member John Nixon’s (1949-2020) signature orange colour links each of the designs, in an acknowledgement to his longstanding contribution to the AC4CA collective.
Artists: Guillaume Boulley, Julian Goddard, Daniel Göttin, George Howlett, Zora Kreuzer, Andrew Leslie, Jan van der Ploeg, Trevor Richards, Alex Spremberg, Helen Smith, David Tremlett, Jeremy Kirwan-Ward, Jurek Wybraniec.
