Artist Jacobus Capone discusses his works in the 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.

Love, Displaced

9 February - 11 May 2019

In this century, feelings of love and empathy are often filtered through social media platforms and 24-hour news cycles. In Love, Displaced, film- based and video art offers new and innovative modes of navigating the white noise of contemporary life towards places of re-sensitisation and emotional engagement.

Curated by Felicity Fenner, the exhibition brings together some of the world’s leading contemporary artists: Jacobus Capone, Richard Lewer (NZ), Tracey Moffatt and Gary Hillberg, Christian Thompson; AES+F (Russia), Jeremy Deller and Cecilia Bengolea (UK, Argentina/France), Roee Rosen (Israel). Three of the Australian artists have specific links to WA, either their birthplace or the subject of works presented.

A Perth Festival exhibition supported by Visual Arts Program Partner Wesfarmers Arts.
