In her most ambitious exhibition to date, globally renowned artist Patricia Piccinini will occupy 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.

Working in Melbourne, Piccinini has attracted international renown since 2003, when she represented Australia at the prestigious Venice Biennale. Most recently, her exhibition ‘Consciousness’, which toured Brazil in 2016–17, attracted more than 1.3 million visitors.

Patricia Piccinini’s fantastic hybrid beings invite us to find beauty in a world not ruled by notions of perfection.
