Please join us as we celebrate the openings of Erin Coates’ KINESPHERE and George Egerton-Warburton’s Administration is Just Oulipian Poetry.
These two architecturally charged exhibitions will see PICA’s building restructured, cut up and radically re-imagined!
KINESPHERE is a grand scale installation inspired by the artist’s background in urban climbing and interest in architecture. Coates, a recipient of a Catalyst: Katherine Hannay Visual Arts Comission Grant, is creating a new landscape inside PICA, connecting the ground and first floors with a 7 metre high mountainous structure housing a micro-cinema and surrounded by wall drawings, a 3D film and an interactive climbing room.
Administration is just Oulipian Poetry is a significant solo exhibition by George Egerton-Warburton, a Western Australian born artist now based in Los Angeles. In an interconnected installation carved pieces of the gallery walls will be suspended from a sprawling mobile and the gallery will be filled with visual and olfactory artworks, collectively forming a sensorially charged, contemplative environment.
Come down in comfy shoes and your best pair of shorts and climb the gallery walls with us! Liquid chalk provided.
