Exhibitions / MOSTYN | Amalia Pica: Switchboard [institutional leadership]

15.11.2014 to 01.03.2015

Argentina-born artist Amalia Pica’s practice primarily explores her background; communal histories, myths, rites and traditions, as well as language and ways of communication. Her works include installation, photography, drawing and performance, with a specific focus on sculpture.

The exhibitions brings together work that looks at communication, particularly the act of listening and its ability to be both effective and also nuanced and fallible.

These themes, which have their basis in social interaction, will be reflected in the presentation of the work. Actions of touch and hearing are made equal and often as important as the viewer’s gaze.

Amalia Pica is presented, along with Irma Blank’s Breath Painting, as the second in the ‘Conversation Series’ at MOSTYN. Amalia Pica–Switchboard is curated by Adam Carr (Visual Arts Programme Curator, MOSTYN). It has been partially funded by the Elephant Trust.
