what washes up
Discover artistic musings in unexpected places throughout the Festival.
‘Spume’ refers to the foam produced by the churning of water, capping the waves or leaving tidelines on a riverbed. Pip Lewi’s drawings chart an ’urban spume’ in vivid texta, pen and layers of correction fluid, chronicling detritus and markings left in the city by tides of human activity. Over the course of the Festival Pip’s works will ebb and flow daily across online platforms, public screens and other places, forming an ephemeral ode to things discarded, forgotten and overlooked.
Pip Lewi – Artist
Pip Lewi is an artist and lurker based in Boorloo (Perth, Western Australia) on stolen Whadjuk Noongar boodja. They seek playful disruptions in the mundane landscape, utilising portable materials and processes to document and accommodate the fleeting nature of everyday ephemera. A sketchbook serves as their ideal tool for containing and capturing snapshots of idiosyncratic scenes, often framing detritus as a visual punch-line in imagined narratives.
