Gallery of Modern Art
24 Mar, 2018 - 5 Aug, 2018
In her most ambitious exhibition to date, globally renowned artist Patricia Piccinini will occupy GOMA’s entire ground floor with a retrospective of her key works and a suite of daring new commissions conceived for the Gallery’s expansive spaces. Known for her imaginative hybrid creatures, Piccinini uses sculpture, installation, video and sound to realise a fantastic and compassionate vision inspired by science, Surrealism and mythology.
Born in Sierra Leone and raised in Australia, she has exhibited extensively around the world. She represented Australia at the 2003 Venice Biennale, created the infamous inflatable sculpture The Skywhale for the 2013 Centenary of Canberra, and drew over a million visitors to a touring exhibition in Brazil in 2016. Patricia Piccinini: Curious Affection is exclusive to the Gallery of Modern Art. Along with a survey of some of the artist’s most recognisable life-like sculptures of the past 10 years, it will include a large-scale, newly commissioned inflatable sculpture suspended in GOMA’s Long Gallery and culminate in a vast and immersive multi-sensory environment.
