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.
