Expanding on a new direction in her practice, Perth based artist Lia McKnight delves into the intriguing space between waking and dreaming exploring domestic spaces and the subconscious. Evocations of the bedroom as a site of sleep, love, loss and the erotic are investigated in this body of work. During her PICA residency notions of ritual, intimacy and the uncanny will be articulated through sculpture, drawing, textiles and installation.
