Amy Perejuan-Capone

Amy Perejuan-Capone works between Fremantle, the Perth hills, the Western Australian wheatbelt, and international residencies. With a background in art, design, and aviation, Perejuan-Capone continually returns to objects and the networks of agency held within them and, increasingly, the roles the environment, anxiety, personal history, and optimism play in this system. 

Amy graduated with a BA(Fine Art) from Curtin University in 2009 and an Advanced Diploma of Industrial Design from North Metropolitan TAFE in 2014. Her major residencies include the prestigious Shigaraki Ceramic Culture Park, 2019, the Asialink Fremantle – Taipei Artist Village exchange in 2020, and the Upernavik Museum residency, Greenland, in 2017. 

Amy’s practice increasingly produces large-scale mix media installations. Her most ambitious include One Word For Snow, a series of ephemeral ‘blizzards’ in Perth CBD in 2017, and Don’t Stare at the Sun/For Too Long wherein she built a full size replica of her dads ultralight plane, exhibited at PS Art Space in 2019. Her latest solo exhibition SKY CAVE took over the atrium of the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts in 2021 with a flock of heritage hang gliders, homemade aircraft, fine textiles, and lined the entire gallery in gold mylar foil.
