PICA presents: Derek Kreckler and Consuelo Cavaniglia

  • Perth Cultural Centre

'In the distance a pool of light was not what it seemed' is an exhibition of new work created for PICA’s West End Gallery.

Extending her drawing practice into three-dimensional forms, Sydney-based West Australian artist Consuelo Cavaniglia takes her latest works to a new scale, creating a landscape of pavilions for visitors to move through and around. The artist ruptures and folds reflective surfaces, colour fields and airbrushed edges to create illusions of depth. Cavaniglia combines drawings, mirrors and structures to construct disorienting interiors with cinematic undertones, offering up new perceptual situations within space, time and architecture.

Derek Kreckler: Accident & Process is the first survey exhibition of one of Australia’s most rigorous conceptual artists. It brings together photography, video, installation, sound and performance works drawn from the artist’s early experimental practice of the 1970s through to his more recent focus on still and moving imagery in the 21st century.

The exhibition considers the relationship between culture and the environment, focusing on representations of landscape, national identity and the role of chance in determining these. In focusing on these themes, Accident & Process addresses notions that are of enduring importance to the artist, central to the evolution of Australia’s cultural history and which demonstrate Kreckler’s desire to explore, extrapolate and test our understanding of our physical, cultural and social surrounds.

Exhibiting throughout October on the big screen.
