Patricia Piccinini: Between the Shadow and the Soul

on view at the Taide Halli, Finland through October 25, 2020

The Australian Patricia Piccinini (b. 1965 Sierra Leone) is known for her human-like, anthropomorphic sculptures. Her intriguing works combine fantasy with reality, the imagined with the real, and human with machine, making it impossible to distinguish where one ends and the other begins.


The over 30 works in the exhibition Between the Shadow and the Soul form an intensive collection where the viewer encounters many kinds of lifeforms, surprising characters and stories where fact and fiction, science and mythology meet. The exhibition is curated by Anna Mustonen.
