Grab a drink and join us for a night of conversation with our resident Hatched artists Remy Faint (NSW) and Ilona McGuire (WA), facilitated by Hatched Curatorial Fellow Miranda Johnson.
Remy Faint’s residency at PICA is focused on repositioning their practice geographically from the east to the west coast of Australia, establishing a unique framework to investigate new ideas surrounding site-specificity. Remy’s practice is motivated by the desire to expand languages of painterly and sculptural abstraction by examining its global histories. His work often references objects and materials specific to his Chinese heritage such as the folding screen, a spatial tool and a cultural symbol.
Ilona McGuire is a proud Whadjuk, Ballardong, Yuat and Kungarakan artist working across various mediums to explore cultural identity, race relations, and traditional versus contemporary indigenous values. Through this residency, Ilona will be exploring new materials and scales within her practice with an aim to push view experience of her work.
With the galleries open late and drinks on us, it’s the perfect opportunity to view the exhibition and hear from two of Australia’s best emerging contemporary artists!
