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.

Yao Jui-Chung (TWN)
Yao Jui-Chung is a researcher, lecturer, curator and artist based in Taipei whose broad practice incorporates photography, installation and painting. Yao is known for projects that studiously document built urban environments and investigate the social and political foundations on which they are constructed. Mirage is a project that began in 2010 in collaboration with
a group of student photographers known as the Lost Society Document. With his collaborators, Yao chronicles disused and abandoned public properties. This project sparked an ongoing public conversation about the allocation of government funding and use of public land across Taiwan.
During his residency Yao will explore Perth’s metropolitan landscape, undertaking site-specic research and meeting with local collaborators.

This residency is supported by Kuandu Museum of Fine Art, Taipei; City of Perth, North Metropolitan TAFE and Turner Galleries, Perth.
