Jacobus Capone is a Perth based emerging artist working within durational performance, installation, painting and video. His work continually has an emotional and humanistic sensitivity, and centers around the desire and constant effort to integrate all action into the wholeness of one lived experience. This process has seen that sense of here and not here constantly evoked; instants, nonsense, gone or left, strong delicacy, sincere eternal and perhaps the most respectful non intrusive openness. The ‘work’ itself may be more related to gestures (for they are) centrally addressing the remaining point in all of us where everything exists in another way; the sensation of being here, but not being here, in a world that could not be, but is.
Jacobus Capone is supported by the Freedman Foundation Travelling scholarship and The Department of Culture and Arts WA.
