Say what? Hearsay shares strange stories from yesteryear
Published Tuesday, 2nd July 2019
Gather round and share in tales of the weird, the wonderful and the extraordinary in the Wanneroo Gallery’s new exhibition, Hearsay.
Blurring the line between fact and fiction, Hearsay recounts a collection of strange and sometimes scary fireside tales taken from local folklore.
From the adventures Moondyne Joe, an English convict who went on to become Western Australia’s most infamous bushranger, to the cursed shipwreck of the SS Alkimos and its resident ghoul, Hearsay explores the surreal and the downright spooky.
Encompassing mysterious UFOs, shadowy big cats and more, the Hearsay highlights both the weird and wonderful parts of Wanneroo and features a mix of artworks, theatrical performances, videos and re-enactments.
Hearsay is on display at the Wanneroo Gallery from Monday 8 July to Saturday 31 August. Entry is free.
