Patricia Piccinini

We Travel Together

Patricia Piccinini is one of Australia’s most acclaimed artists who has received worldwide attention for her startling sculptures, installations and digital environments.

Piccinini’s work examines the connections between science, nature, art and the care. Her sculptures are familiar yet fantastical, a possible future species from a strange new world, charming and slightly unsettling creatures and mutants who blur the boundary between people and the animals we share the world with.

Her previous Festival show in 2015 drew record crowds and for GIAF 2024 Piccinini will create a large-scale, site-specific installation especially for Galway. She represented Australia at the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003 and in 2016 her exhibition ComCiência was named the most popular contemporary art exhibition in the world by The Art Newspaper.

Festival Gallery is in association with The Dean, Galway.
