The Perth and Sydney Echo

FrenchMottershead (UK)

UK Artists Rebecca French and Andrew Mottershead, will be pounding the streets of the Perth CBD for five days in search of ‘locals’ to discuss yesterday’s news stories from The West Australian newspaper in order to painstakingly re-create it anew. The Perth and Sydney Echo is a free tabloid newspaper created, published and circulated by FrenchMottershead. Participants are approached on the city street and invited to choose a person/s in a reported situation they can empathize with and re-create their own version. This new record of events will be eventually published as The Perth and Sydney Echo.
