Internationally recognised Kokatha and Nukunu artist Yhonnie Scarce brings her luminous and powerful works to The Art Gallery of Western Australia in the largest-ever ensemble of her collected glass and mixed-media works seen in Australia, for the Perth Festival in 2024.

One of the country's leading contemporary artists, Scarce is known for her large-scale, unforgettable glass installations that reveal hidden stories of Australia's foray into nuclear testing, and the impacts of colonisation on First Nations people, illuminating the artist's desire to bring the darkest shadows of Australia's past into the direct light of day.

The sheer scale of these works - installations of glass yams hung like overd chandeliers in the gallery space - highlight the artistry and aesthetic beauty of the glass form. Through these evocative installations, Scarce's work makes visible the story of the dehumanising of First Nations families and communities told through the lens of archival imagery from her photographic collection, mingled with her handmade glass objects, both at an intimate and phenomenal scale.

Yhonnie Scarce: The Light of Day exhibits at the Art Gallery of Western Australia from 2 February until 19 May.

A digital screening of selected works from the AGWA exhibition project from the City of Perth Northbridge Piazza Superscreen and City of Perth Forrest Place Arts Screen throughout March.
