Penelope Cain is an interdisciplinary artist, working between drawing, photography and video.
She has an ongoing interest in the contemporary urban landscape, in particular the spaces and places of ‘The City’, and the potential for porosities and ruptures within these spaces, as sites for the unreal or imagined to bleed into the controlled rationality of the city.
Penelope Cain has a background in animal science and recently completed an MFA at Sydney College of the Arts. She has undertaken residencies at the Australia Council for the Arts studio in Rome, Asialink residency in Taipei and most recently, the Power Institute Award residency at the Cite International des Arts, Paris. She has exhibited in Sydney, Melbourne, London, Rome, Seoul and Taipei.
