Hang-Gliding Film Night

Escape<br>Hang-Gliding Film Night

Experience a night of Super8 films uncovered from the deep archives of the local hang-gliding community accompanied by a live score from Perth electronic music duo Hi Ok Sorry.

The screenings will be followed by a launch of the super limited-edition catalogue for Amy Perejuan-Capone’s exhibition Sky Cave at PICA. This unique catalogue features handmade screenprints by Danni McGrath, essays, and reproductions of the artist’s visual diary alongside the early aviation log-books of her father. Hear the artist speak with writer and curator Kelly Fliedner about her exhibition and gain an insight into the fascinating history of the pioneering hang-gliding community in WA (and what this has to do with contemporary art).

Ticketholders will have the first opportunity to buy the exhibition catalogue with a special discounted price on the night.
Catering will be provided and drinks will be available to purchase from PICABAR.
$10 + BF and $15 on the door

About the Artist

Amy Perejuan-Capone works between Fremantle, the Perth hills, the Western Australian wheatbelt, and international residencies. With a background in art and design, Perejuan-Capone continually returns to objects and the networks of agency held within them and, increasingly, the roles the environment, anxiety, personal history, and optimism play in this system. Her recent projects have taken a speculative approach, transforming processes and phenomena such as weather, flight, or public services along with personally significant elements such as memory, family, and class into critical ‘what-if’ scenarios. Perejuan-Capone is the recipient of numerous residencies, including most recently Asialink Taipei/Fremantle Exchange, Taiwan (2020); Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Centre, Shigaraki, Japan (2019); Upernavik Museum, Greenland (2017); Sirius Art Centre, Cobh, Ireland (2016);  SiM, Reykjavik, Iceland (2014, 2015); and NES, Skagaströnd, Iceland (2013).
