Jacobus Capone: Beating Heart

July 24 - September 7

Jacobus Capone, Echo & Abyss – Chapter 6, Scene 9 (video still), 2018. Synchronised 10 Channel HD video, dimensions variable. Courtesy: the artist, Moore Contemporary, Perth and Fremantle Arts Centre, Fremantle.

This major solo exhibition by Perth artist Jacobus Capone presents three significant bodies of work across video, installation and works on paper. At the centre of Beating Heart is Capone’s epic 10-channel video installation Echo & Abyss, shown in its entirety for the first time. Experienced from within a vast circle of screens, the work draws viewers into sublime, frozen landscapes, which were filmed in locations from Sierre in Switzerland to Greenland’s ice sheet. The stark enormity, elemental power and slow geological time within these scenes are all measured against the artist’s own body, as he appears at surrender within each landscape.

Across Capone’s works there is an unflinching drive to understand human thresholds and the timeframe of a single life. Through filmed performance and mesmeric mark making, Capone’s work exudes a powerful sense of cohesion whilst examining human and environmental fragility.

Beating Heart is the largest presentation of Capone’s artwork to date and provides audiences with an opportunity to immerse themselves in the work of one of Western Australia’s most compelling contemporary artists.
