In recent years, Perth based Martu artist Curtis Taylor has emerged as one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists. PICA is pleased to present his first solo exhibition, Untitled (Uura), which brings together multiple streams of his practice including sculpture, installation and film.

Untitled (Uura) presents work made over a two-year period of exploration as Taylor worked with new materials and processes of making, finding new forms through which to tell stories and record language. This period of practice marks a departure from his first medium of film and presents a series of carved sculptures and site-specific installations and paintings.

Presented by: Squid Vicious

29 October – 16 November, Blue Room Theatre


A 26-year-old Filipina and her baby arrive in Australia for the first time. A mermaid (half woman, half octopus) washes up at Fremantle and opens up a fish and chip shop.

Ocean temperatures are on the rise, causing squids to proliferate in numbers. Pauline Hanson’s scared of being swamped by Asians. The baby turns 11 and starts wishing her skin was white. The mermaid is making a killing selling her own tentacles. Pauline’s still out there, plotting. The ocean isn’t showing any signs of cooling down, the squids are taking over and the baby – now the same age as her mum when she arrived in Australia – makes a theatre show about identity politics.
