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.

All The Gardens I Could Find

During her residency at PICA, Melanie will concentrate on developing a comprehensive cataloguing system for all the material in her personal photographic archive related to gardens. Drawing on photographs that depict a wide range of historical and contemporary gardens worldwide, she will consider the slippages between traditional classification systems and subjective, intuitive interpretations. Guiding this process are the central questions ‘how do we manage the endless quantity of images?’ and ‘how does the archiving process create meaning from the disorder?’
