2021 Spring Exhibitions Opening

Thursday 21 October | 6.30pm - 8.30pm

Join us as we both welcome and celebrate the opening of PICA’s 2021 spring exhibitions.
Sky Cave by Amy Perejuan Capone is a solo exhibition that was conceived for the central gallery space at PICA. This new body of work includes sculpture, video and installation, using the dramatic height of the gallery for the presentation of historical hang gliders. Sky Cave continues Perejuan-Capone’s excavations of the family archives documenting an ever-present pursuit of flight. Recent projects have developed through collaboration with her father, an amateur aviator for nearly 50 years. Sky Cave builds on her parents’ pioneering contribution to the sport to examine the complexity of family narratives and relationship to place, and the transference of skill, memory and points of connection across generations.
Coming Home by Alex Martinis Roe is a solo exhibition presenting a new body of work by Alex Martinis Roe, along with her film Bliss Techniques (2018). Through film and archival material, Coming Home explores the legacy of the kinship practices that began in the Australian Women’s Liberation and Gay & Lesbian Liberation movements in a small community in Adelaide, Australia called JAFL – the Jewish Adelaide Feminist Lesbians.
The opening celebrations will feature a Welcome to Country by Noongar elder Vaughn McGuire, and speeches by PICA Director Amy Barrett-Lennard & PICA Board Member Susanna Castleden.
Auslan interpreters will be provided by Auslan Stage Left.
Sky Cave and Coming Home are open to the public from 22 October 2021 – 9 January 2022.
