Gallery of Modern Art, Gallery 1.1 (The Fairfax Gallery), Gallery 1.2 & Gallery 1.3 (Eric and Marion Taylor Gallery)
If you’re a lover of GOMA’s immersive exhibitions played out on a grand scale, then this exhibition is for you. In her most ambitious exhibition to date, globally renowned artist Patricia Piccinini occupies GOMA’s entire ground floor with a retrospective of her most recognisable works from the past 20 years, and a suite of immersive multisensory installations – including a large-scale inflatable sculpture – especially conceived for the Gallery’s expansive spaces.
Known for her imaginative, yet strangely familiar, lifelike hybrid creatures, Piccinini invites us to think about our place in a world where advances in biotechnology and digital technologies are challenging the boundaries of humanity.
Hear Patricia talk about the meaning and inspiration behind her works in these audio stories or dive deeper into her practice via the exhibition playlist on YouTube.
Patricia Piccinini's fantastic hybrid beings invite us to find beauty in a world not ruled by notions of perfection.
