PICA Sky Cave

Sky Cave by Amy Perejuan-Capone

Conceived for the central gallery space at PICA, Amy Perejuan-Capone presents a new body of work including sculpture, video and installation, using the dramatic height of the gallery for the presentation of historical hang gliders.

 
Sky Cave continues Perejuan-Capone’s excavations of the family archives documenting an ever-present pursuit of flight. Recent projects have developed through collaboration with her father, an amateur aviator for nearly 50 years. Sky Cave builds on her parents’ pioneering contribution to the sport to examine the complexity of family narratives and relationship to place, and the transference of skill, memory and points of connection across generations.
 
Perejuan-Capone’s practice is underpinned by an enquiry into the systems of exchange that are present through the acquisition and application of craft. Across broad mediums including ceramics, textiles and metalworks, she seeks to understand objects, materials and the networks of social and cultural agency held within them. Present in her work, which often take form as large scale sculptural installations, are the interconnected systems of environment, production, labour and personal and social histories.
