Curator’s Perspective: Body in the Work of Paulina Ołowska and Tala Madani

Fri 15 Dec 17, 2pm–2.30pm
NGV International

Ground Level

Free entry

Influenced by the history of avant-garde art, traditional crafts and experimental traditions of Poland and other former Soviet countries, Paulina Ołowska uses performance, sculpture, painting, neon and fashion to revisit history, while Tala Madani’s work depicts darkly comic and often theatrical stories in which bald, middle-aged men engage in perverse activities.

NGV curator Pip Wallis discusses how the theme of body is reflected in the work of these two NGV Triennial artists.
