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.

If … so … then, is drawn from the Mangano sisters childhood experiences of their intimate communication and almost telepathic connection. Filmed face-to-face the twins fluently draw around the periphery of each others body. At once inaccessible and peculiarly tender their intense hypnotic performance mimics the repetition of learning a new language. Layered and rich in associations this video work engages notions of language, gesture, drawing and architecture.
