3015 AA Rotterdam
So recognisable and yet so strange. Simultaneously bizarre and cuddly. Kunsthal Rotterdam is presenting the first major solo exhibition in the Netherlands of the Australian artist Patricia Piccinini (1965).
Using materials like silicones, glass fibre, nylon, and human hair, Piccinini creates her almost life-like, alienating sculptures in a hyperrealist way. In this exhibition, Piccinini's surrealist world will astonish people of all ages.
Piccinini creates futuristic stories in a parallel universe where she explores the possibilities for a future in which humans, nature and technology are able to coexist in harmony. She uses art and science to imagine a shared future.
With her hyperrealist sculptures, video works, and installations she also raises questions like: What does it mean to be human? Would I be able to take care of a creature that does not look like me? Can we replace animal species that are becoming extinct with cyborgs?
