South Beach, West End, Port
2-24 Nov | Thur-Sun
Behavioural Ecologies (Red)' is a series of interventions, installations and live performances that take place across multiple sites throughout Fremantle. The work is conceived of as a 'roving tableau' that responds directly and indirectly to the unique formal, topographical and historical qualities of the port city. Unfolding over the month of November, 'Behavioural Ecologies (Red)' will occupy and leave a trail across the city, beginning at South Beach and its surrounds, passing through the West End and the Port, and ending at the North Mole. Follow the movements and markings of this mysterious cohort while they go about their leisure and their work.
Bennett Miller (b 1980) works across sculpture, installation, video and performance. In more recent years Miller's work has moved out of the gallery and into the public realm, through a series of live art performances for festivals and outdoor contexts. Between 2010 and 2012 Miller's popular Dachshund UN project was presented in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth (AUS), Birmingham (UK), Toronto and Montreal (CAN). In 2012 Miller was included in New12 at ACCA, Melbourne and was a resident at Australia Council's Greene St Studio in New York. From 2013-2017 Miller then presented five consecutive iterations of his fake Amish community BARNRAISER at Splendour in the Grass Festival in Northern NSW.
