In Conversation: Christopher Pease & Clothilde Bullen
Hear from Minang/Wardandi/Bibbulmun artist Christopher Pease and AGWA Curator and Head of Indigenous Programs Clothilde Bullen to discuss his AGWA commissioned work Targets, a 34-metre-long contemporary Aboriginal art piece taking centre stage on the new AGWA Rooftop.
One of the most significant commissions of a Noongar artist in Western Australian history.
A new 34-metre long, 5-metre tall light-based artwork commissioned from Minang/Wardandi/Bibbulmun artist Christopher Pease takes up place on the Perth city skyline, wrapping around the exterior walls of AGWA’s new rooftop. Titled Targets, the work celebrates the ongoing importance of the Derbarl Yerrigan — the Noongar name for the Swan River — to Perth’s identity and its ecosystem. It’s one of the artist’s most significant public works to date and the largest public commission from a Noongar artist in Western Australian history.
