Presented by Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery ·

In this talk, artist Jacobus Capone discusses his works in the Perth Festival exhibition Love, Displaced. Based in Perth, Western Australia, Jacobus Capone maintains a practice that incorporates performance, photography, video installation, painting and site-specific work. Characteristically evocative and poetic, his work frequently combines physically demanding durational performances with majestic, sublime landscapes.
In 2007, he traversed Australia by foot in order to pour water from the Indian Ocean into the Pacific.

His work has been shown in a range of solo and group exhibitions, most recently his solo exhibition Forgiving Night for Day, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (2017), Primavera, Museum of Contemporary  Art, Sydney (2017) and NEW16, Australia Centre for Contemporary Art.
