Jayda Wilson, University of South Australia is an emerging artist of Gugada, Wirangu and Thai descent. During their residency, Jayda will research genealogies and photographs from the expeditions of Norman B Tindale and JB Birdsell, held in the Aboriginal Affairs Department in Boorloo. Her great-grandmother Neva Wilson worked with these anthropology archives during the Aboriginal Family History Project with the South Australian Museum to make these records accessible for Aboriginal people to understand their history and regain a sense of self.
Hatched Studio Residency Program
PICA offers a studio residency to one interstate and one Perth-based Hatched artist every year. In 2023 an additional residency has been awarded to an interstate artist in acknowledgement of the high calibre of their proposal, which relates to specific research to be undertaken in Perth. The residency runs for five weeks from the opening week of the Hatched exhibition. This is an opportunity for the selected artists to develop or research new work with the artists encouraged to consider the trajectory of their wider practice. The residency project does not necessarily have to be connected to the work the artists present as part of Hatched. Hatched interstate and WA artists are selected through a callout.
