Amalia Pica

please open hurry

August - October 2018
PICA - Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, Perth, Australia


With a series of new commissioned works, Amalia Pica explores the techniques, potential, and shortcomings of communication between different species.

The project is a continuation of Pica’s longstanding consideration of language, comprehension, misunderstanding, translation, and listening. Through sculpture, photography, installation, performance and video, Pica’s work investigates how we communicate beyond the barriers of language.

Born during Argentina’s dictatorship, Pica explores the relationship between form and politics, and between history and representation. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Australia.

Project developed in partnership with The Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane and The Power Plant, Toronto, with the generous support of the Keir Foundation.
