(¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.-> Pip Lewi is a (full time) artist and (part time) voyeur currently based in Boorloo (Perth, Western Australia) on unceded Whadjuk Noongar boodja. They seek playful disruptions in the mundane landscape, using portable materials and processes to document everyday ephemera. Their practice considers reframing the flâneur in contemporary Australiana; exploring curious narratives and smirking at visual puns.
In 2021, Pip produced 'what washes up', an interactive and ambient solo exhbiiton for Perth Festival, and facilitated its accompanying public walking tour 'we could walk together if you want'. They also exhibited their third solo show 'An Ode to Transperth' at Spectrum Project Space, published their first book 'noted', were Highly Commended in The Fremantle Arts Centre Print Awards, performed in PICA's KISS Club and participated in 'Wet Grace', a durational performance for Sculptures by the Sea, Cottesloe. (what a year so far!) They have previously shown work at various local galleries including Cool Change Contemporary, Pigmelon, Paper Mountain, City Arts Space, Smart Casual, Moores Building and AGWA.
Their passions include- but are not limited to: public transport, textas, wheelie bins, Coles little shop, redback spiders, ASMR and smartphone note apps, to name a few. Pip Lewi also goes by Pipe sometimes. <-.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯)
