At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

Our foyer is open today 10am–5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

In the distance a pool of light was not what it seemed is an exhibition of new work created for PICA’s West End Gallery. Extending her drawing practice into three-dimensional forms, Sydney-based West Australian artist Consuelo Cavaniglia takes her latest works to a new scale, creating a landscape of pavilions for visitors to move through and around.

The artist ruptures and folds reflective surfaces, colour fields and airbrushed edges to create illusions of depth. Cavaniglia combines drawings, mirrors and structures to construct disorienting interiors with cinematic undertones, offering up new perceptual situations within space, time and architecture.
