Patricia Piccinini — Too close for comfort
Using hyper-realistic sculptures of customized life forms, Patricia Piccinini examines the relationships between animals, nature, science, and technology.
Her major artworks often reflect her interests in world issues such as bioethics, biotechnologies and the environment, exploring what she calls the ‘often specious distinctions between the artificial and the natural’. She challenges our classification of life by displaying the relationship and differences between the organic, natural and our constructed material world.
