One of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, Rosslynd Piggott has received critical acclaim since the early 1980s. Her practice is wide and varied, including painting, drawing, photography, textiles, video, installation, sculpture and performance.
Rosslynd Piggott: I Sense You But I Cannot See You comes twenty-one years after her first survey exhibition, Rosslynd Piggott: Suspended Breath, also held at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1998. Featuring more than 100 artworks linked by ideas that have sustained Piggott from the beginning of her career, the exhibition includes a number of installations that are being re-created especially for the exhibition, new paintings and a group of engraved glass sculptures that Piggott has made in collaboration with artisans on Murano Island, Venice, in recent years.
Members are invited to preview the exhibition and attend a talk by the artist as she speaks in conversation with exhibition curator Jane Devery at 2.30pm.
