Exhibition Opening


Opening Event: Saturday 13th Feb, 3-5pm.

Patricia Piccinini is one of the most popular – and controversial – artists in the world. She has had over 55 solo shows in the past 13 years including Brazil (where over 1.4 million visitors came to see her show), USA, Germany, UK, Finland, Australia, Sweden, Slovenia, Ireland, Lithuania and now…. Grey Lynn!

Known for her imaginative, yet strangely familiar, ultra-lifelike chimera works (human/animal hybrids), Piccinini invites us to think about our place in a world where advances in biotechnology and digital technologies are challenging the boundaries of humanity.

Patricia is genuinely excited to share these works to a New Zealand audience for the first time. “I love showing to New Zealand audiences, as they’re open to quite confronting work. Yet connection and empathy are at the heart of my practice. My creatures are imaginary beings that are almost possible. They are not always traditionally beautiful, but they have a beauty and honesty within them. They are more vulnerable than threatening. I’m also excited to show some of my most recent exploratory drawings, which are an important part of my practice.”
