Tarryn Gill and Pilar Mata Dupont will transform PICA’s Tower Studio into an elaborate stage for their latest work,Heart of Gold Project 3. This is the third stage of their visual research in preparation for a future production (in collaboration with Thea Costantino), The Heart of Gold, an original theatrical musical set during a fictional Australian civil war, circa 1935. Tarryn and Pilar will use the studio to develop a space where they can explore the effects of war on entertainment and the media, Australian nationalism, and the glamourisation of the military used both in fascist propaganda and American pin-up photography of the early twentieth century.
