Description

The warnings of a climate crisis are all there. Katie used to read them on the radio when she was an emergency broadcaster. She’s sorry to interrupt your program with that information. Her OCD makes her sorry for everything. But she’s most sorry her favourite karri forest might not exist one day. Reflecting on the events of Black Summer and the Wooroloo bushfires, Watch and Act is a hilarious anti-comedy about missed warning signs for OCD and nostalgia for a time and place that’s already disappearing. It’s also an audition tape to be Nigella Lawson’s emergency contact in a climate crisis

Description

Presented by Tura New Music & WA Museum Boola Bardip Primordial is a unique merging of science and sound – a visceral listening experience that re-enacts the shifting of tectonic plates to form the Flinders Ranges. It's a journey through time to the first sign of life on earth with the appearance of the Ediacara fossils. The sonic world of PRIMORDIAL reflects the immense landscape of the Ediacara Fossil field on the edge of the Australian desert. Composer Constantine Koukias imagines the sound of shifting tectonic plates through manipulated piano preparations and electronics to create cascading waves of sound. The piano as we know it is reinvented, its resonance reflecting a haunting, fragile sound world. Gabriella Smart pounds and caresses the piano, cajoling beautiful and extraordinary prepared sounds that are symbiotic with Koukias' electronic score. ""Koukias' sharp and at times fragile music miraculously re?ected this vast landscape on the edge of the Australian desert" — Thomas Tamvakos, Archive of Greek Composers [2020] Piano: Gabriella Smart Music: Constantine Koukias (AUS/NETH) Tape Sound Design: Mischa Duncan te Pas Lighting Design: Jason James Event image: Ben D Woods

PICA: Love in Bright Landscapes

Love in Bright Landscapes explores the possibilities of contemporary art in contributing to these ongoing stories of identity, purpose, presence and place in the cities of Perth and Los Angeles.

  • Dates:Jul 27 - Oct 10
  • Venue:PICA Galleries

Details

  • Hosted By:PICA
  • Art Exhibitions:Other Visual Arts
  • Produced By:PICA: Perth Institute of Contemporary Art
  • Event Venue:PICA

Description

Love in Bright Landscapes takes its title from the name of a 1986 album by former, now cult, Perth band The Triffids – a group that has contributed much to the city’s narrative of wide open roads, treeless plains and the relentless heat of a long, dry Perth summer. But this evocation of love – and with it the possibilities and pitfalls of infatuation and romanticisation – in a landscape stretched out beneath an expansive bright sky, might equally apply to an understanding of Los Angeles: a city that itself has long been steeped in lore and myth. As such, this exhibition considers Perth and Los Angeles as comparative case studies, bringing together a selection of artworks made in reference to the characters, qualities and topographies of the two west coast cities. Despite their inherent differences – in industry, scale, population, politics, public perception and self-image – and the distinct independent cultures of each city, Perth and Los Angeles share several commonalties: from indigenous and colonial histories to natural resource booms, sprawling suburbia, car culture, blazing sunsets and seamy underbellies.

  • Venue:PICA: Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts

Details

  • Hosted By:PICA
  • Ticket Price:Free
  • Art Exhibitions:Historical,Sculpture,Video
  • Produced By:PICA: Perth Institute of Contemporary Art
  • Event Venue:PICA

Description

Alex Martinis Roe sets out to explore feminist, lesbian and queer kinship structures via a non-linear genealogy of the artist’s own kin. Alex Martinis Roe explores feminist genealogies and seeks to foster specific and productive relationships between different generations as a way of participating in the construction of feminist histories and futures. This involves developing research and storytelling methodologies that employ non-linear understandings of time, respond to the specific practices of different communities, experiment with the set-up of discursive encounters and imagine how these entanglements can inform new political practices.

Description

Conceived for the central gallery space at PICA, Amy Perejuan-Capone presents a new body of work including sculpture, video and installation, using the dramatic height of the gallery for the presentation of historical hang gliders. Perejuan-Capone‘s practice is underpinned by an enquiry into the systems of exchange that are present through the acquisition and application of craft. Across broad mediums including ceramics, textiles and metalworks, she seeks to understand objects, materials and the networks of social and cultural agency held within them. Present in her work, which often take form as large scale sculptural installations, are the interconnected systems of environment, production, labour and personal and social histories.
