Sky Cave is a major presentation of new work by Fremantle-based artist Amy Perejuan-Capone. Her largest solo exhibition to date, Sky Cave continues Perejuan-Capone’s exploration of the family archives documenting an ever-present pursuit of flight.
The exhibition showcases the breadth of Perejuan-Capone’s artistic practice, featuring ceramics, textiles, video and a dramatically-scaled installation of historic hang gliders. The result of an ongoing conversation and collaboration between the artist and her father, a hang-gliding pioneer, Sky Cave deftly weaves together personal and social histories to explore the complexity of family narratives and the transference of skill, memory and points of connection across generations.
With travel curtailed and fleets grounded, Sky Cave reminds us of the exhilaration and miracle of flight – of ingenuity, trial and error, patience and effort, themes that can equally be applied to the acquisition and application of craft.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Sunday: 10am – 5pm
