Gian Manik has recently returned from undertaking a FORM residency in the Pilbara. The residency focused on creating new works in partnership with the community of Port Hedland, interpreting the reflective surfaces of the region’s iconic rocks and minerals.
Outcomes of this residency will be show at FORM Gallery Perth on Friday, 9th June, allowing Manik to premiere his first major body of solo work in Western Australia in five years. The centrepiece of his exhibition will be a monumental, 10-meter long canvas, created in collaboration with artists from Port Hedland.
Gian will also exhibit a new series of works, completed in the Pilbara, as part of a solo exhibition at Artereal Gallery in June.
