Erin Coates @ PICA

Event Title: Erin Coates: KINESPHERE. 
Participating Artists: Erin Coates. 

51 James Street Northbridge . 

Description: WA artist Erin Coates has been commissioned to dramatically re-shape the geography of the PICA galleries through a grand scale architectural intervention, inspired by the artist's background in rock climbing and her interest in urban public space. Coates is creating a towering mountain, a 7 meter high installation based on the points of contact made during the artist‚s own climbs. A 3D micro-cinema is housed inside its cavernous structure featuring Coates‚ new sci-fi climbing opera. An entire gallery will be turned into an interactive climbing room in which visitors will be rewarded for scaling great heights by being able to view hidden films. 

This project has been made possible through a Catalyst: Katherine Hannay Visual Arts Commission Grant and PICA's ART5000 Donor Program. 

Dates: 13 September 2014 to 2 November 2014. 
Opening Times: Tuesday - Sunday, 10am - 5pm. 

For more information, contact: PICA at or 08 9228 6300.
