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.

We are closed today. Our exhibitions are always free.

Jia-Jen Lin (Taiwan/New York)

Taiwanese artist Jia-Jen Lin will be using the residency to explore the process of an exchange in a foreign city through examination of the variations of culture; through collected imagery, life style, daily observation, and use of space through architecture as well as natural environment. This residency will further develop Lin’s investigation into the relationship between the material world and the physical sensations of the human body, through sculpture, video, installation, performance and photography. Jia-Jen Lin is interested in the psychological distance between artificial life and our physical sensations.

Through collecting, modifying, and representing information and materials from our daily life, she will explore a series of works integrating sculpture, performance, and digital media. Open to new input to develop her working methods during the residency at PICA, Jia-Jen will investigate the displacement and interexchange roles of objects, the human body, our natural environment and urban settings.
