Patricia Piccinini

Kunsthalle Helsinki

  • 15.8.2020–25.10.2020

Patricia Piccinin's Between the shadow and the soul exhibition will open in August. The new exhibition days are 15.8.–25.10.2020


Australian Patricia Piccinini (b. 1965 in Sierra Leone) is known for her anthropomorphic sculptures that explore the relationship between the artificial and the natural, humans and their environment, and the viewer and the artwork. Piccinini’s art create encaptivating worlds in which fantasy and reality, the imaginary and the real, human and machine come together rendering it difficult to distinguish where one thing starts and another ends.

At the heart of Piccinini’s practice are themes of fecundity – the potential of life – empathy, connection and wonder; the characters Piccinini creates are not conventionally beautiful yet have an endearing quality about them, that evoke in the viewer the desire to care and nurture, and to see beyond their physical qualities. There is also gentle humour in Piccinini’s work that appeals to audiences of all ages.

Piccinini works in a variety of media – painting, video, sound, installation and digital printing. At the exhibition at Kunsthalle Helsinki are present artworks that have toured the world but also several completely new artworks seen for the first time in Helsinki.
