Batavia Gallery

Mutiny, massacre and shipwreck, all on WA’s shores? Yep, it happened off the Abrolhos on the Batavia ship, and this exhibition documents its gorily fascinating journey.

  • Galleries:Installation

Description

The Batavia Gallery is the centrepiece of the Shipwreck Galleries. The gallery houses the reconstructed remains of the VOC ship Batavia, excavated by archaeologists in the 1970s.

After an extensive treatment and restoration process, the remains of the ship’s stern were rebuilt in this gallery.

The gallery also features a skeleton of one of the people murdered on the Abrolhos Islands, a replica of the impressive portico façade – carried as cargo to be used as a grand entrance to the city of Batavia - a reconstruction of the Captain’s cabin, and numerous other artefacts recovered from the wreck.

There is an elevated viewing deck to look down upon the stern of the Batavia, and appreciate the size and scope of the wreck and gallery.

Description

Nestled between the town and the sea, the Heritage Listed limestone building that houses the KIDOGO ARTHOUSE was built in 1884 by Harwood and Son. 

A fixture at the edge of Bathers Beach in Fremantle, the building was originally known as the 'Dangerous Goods Store' and has served a number of purposes. At various times a kerosene storehouse, a Harbour and Lights Department warehouse and a shipwright's shed, the building was saved from near demolition in 1972 to be reborn to its present incarnation as a space for the creative arts.   

Renovated in 1974, the iconic building began its new life as a hub for the arts in 1975 with the opening of Joan Campbell's acclaimed Potter's Studio. At the hands of Founder Joanna Robertson, this renewed and much-loved landmark structure has undergone its most glorious incarnation yet as the KIDOGO ARTHOUSE.
