PICA studio residency openings:

"Join Curator Jasmin Stephens as she leads discussions with current studio artists Tarsh Bates, Alistair Rowe, Lichun Tseng and the Perth Zine Collective.

Studio One
Lichun Tseng / Beyond the beyond
Lichun Tseng is an artist from Taiwan who lives and works in the Netherlands. She is interested in the existential capacity of art and her residency project, Beyond the beyond will explore time, existence and space through local collaborations and new site specific works.

Studio Two
Tarsh Bates / In vitero

Curated by Megan Schlipalius
Tarsh Bates is interested in the body as material and as a site of intervention, in evocative objects, and in the aesthetics of care: embodied encounters that are durational, affective, relational, proximal, and particular. Bates explores these concepts through biology, sculpture and performance, using artistic and scientific tools to explore the nexus of bodies, ethics and culture.

Clocktower Studio
Alistair Rowe / Both Sides Now

During his studio residency at PICA, Alistair Rowe will further develop ideas and works using a combination of assemblage, actions and video as part of his project Both Sides Now. Working with light on reflective and transparent surfaces and using active and activated materials he hopes to create sensory environments that stimulate, surprise and confuse our everyday experience of materiality and space.

Reading Room
The Perth Zine Collective / Zine Library
The Perth Zine Collective is a not-for-profit group keeping the zine culture flame burning in Western Australia. Throughout the collective's residency the Reading Room has housed a zine library built from milk crates, as well as a space for members of the public to create and distribute their own zines.

Jasmin Stephens (WA) is an independent curator who has recently been involved with the Singapore Biennale 2011 as a Visiting Curator and Asialink Arts Management Resident. She has also previously been Curator/Exhibitions Manager at Fremantle Arts Centre and Senior Manager, Education and Access, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney. She is currently on the Board of ANAT, Australian Network for Art and Technology.

This is a free event and the PICA Bar will be open."
