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.

Logue Lake

Logue Lake

Logue Lake is a queer cabin-in-the-woods horror exploring authenticity, the subconscious, and queer identity. Utilising low-power FM radio transmitters, each character has their own assigned FM radio station. With it, you can listen in – switch between – and follow each character’s conversations, thoughts, and personalised soundtrack. Staged in the round – audiences can roam around the cabin facade, peeking into the characters’ lives. 

Logue Lake draws inspiration from classic horror films like The Thing (1982) and from modern social commentary horrors like It Follows (2014)Video games like Her Story (2015)  – a crime fiction game with non-linear storytelling, have also influenced the work. 

For this development at PICA, we will be refining, building and testing the FM technology. Like a game developer letting people try early beta levels of their game, we invite audiences to come into the space to test, trial and interact with the story unfolding. Over our three-week development, there will be six work-in-progress showings, and we are inviting you to help us shape its future form.
