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.

Talitha Maslin

Quick Response Residency

Quick Response Residency

Talitha Maslin will develop her project Wasteland, a unique West Australian work that sees 12 Western Australian artists from different regions collaborate on a performance centred on our singular environments. Her residency will particularly focus on interrogating the connection between video and movement, working with collaborators to experiment with projectors and movement. 

About the Artists

Talitha Maslin is an independent creative producer, choreographer and performer based in Goorlamrup (Kelmscott), Western Australia. Her work is in constant dialogue between the body, spoken word, music, sculpture and film. Her choreographic research centres around embodied states of awareness through relational empathy with nature. By grounding her work in how we relate to the world around us, Talitha explores a broad range of themes that engage a socio-political consciousness to create abstract dramaturgies. 

Talitha’s choreographies include Gogi Dance Collective’s beach dance work SIREN, La Dolente, a site specific study of the femme fatale in an old cinema and In to the Deep a sound, dance and paper installation performance with theorist Matt Jones. Recent collaborations include Helah Milroy, The Discovery Method; Chrissie Parrott, Façade; and Jo Pollitt/Maitland Schnaars, The Simmering
