OPENING NIGHT | 'Forgiving Night for Day' by Jacobus Capone
FRIDAY 17 FEBRUARY // 6:30pm-8:30pm
FREE EVENT

Please join us to celebrate the opening of 'Forgiving Night for Day' by local artist Jacobus Capone. Presented as part of Perth International Arts Festival, this evocative video installation is a contemplative reflection on the poetic Portuguese word ‘saudade’, an expression of deep nostalgia and longing for people, places and times irrevocably lost. During a winter spent in Lisbon Capone wrote lyrics inspired by the emotive registers of ‘Fado’, a traditional Portuguese music genre. His song was filmed over seven consecutive days at dawn, each time performed by a different ‘Fado’ singer from seven viewpoints overlooking the city.

With seven large screens suspended from the ceiling, audiences will enjoy a transformative and immersive experience of the work from varying viewpoints as Capone’s song, performed a capella fills every inch of PICA’s galleries.

Savour the summer festival vibe in the Perth Cultural Centre as Wendy Martin, Artistic Director of Perth International Arts Festival opens the exhibition.
