We are pleased to invite you to PCP's first exhibitions for 2017!

'The Park'
Toni Wilkinson

'The Park' brings together new work from Toni Wilkinson, which enacts a counter narrative to the ‘candy land’ picture postcard vision of Perth that is usually generated from the lookouts of Western Australia’s Kings Park. In this cinematic series Wilkinson wrestles with the uncomfortable dynamics that undercut any sophisticated city and reveals a throbbing darkness based on a ‘lurid mash of racial power and libidinal reality’ which agitates the edges of the park itself.

This project is supported by the State Government through the Department of Culture and the Arts.

'Taken Spaces'
Leela Schauble & Madeline Bishop

Taken Spaces explores the human presence among environments from which they are either visually absent or uninhabitable, considering alternative representations of human existence and experience.

Schauble's video works were created on an artist residency to the Arctic Circle and focuses on uninhabitable natural landscapes and the results of human interactions within this space. Bishop’s photographs aim to capture human traces within spaces where people are physically absent, considering what is left behind in mere seconds or over decades.
