~ Patricia Piccinini

Freetown, Sierra Leone., (b. 1964)

~ Internationally-renowned for her deeply moving and often monumental works ~ Patricia Piccinini’s extraordinary work can be seen in major institutions around the world ~ We are delighted to represent her in New Zealand.

Patricia Piccinini is an artist whose work can literally stop people in their tracks. Responses can range from awe, to shock, and sheer delight. It is, by definition, sensational work. Yet her practice is deeply humane. Thought-provoking and always carefully researched, Patricia’s work often asks questions of what ‘nature’ means. Not just to human beings at this moment in time – but perhaps even the future – by exploring the inherent universal ideas such as motherhood, connection, empathy, dominance and abjection.
