Artist of the Day: Fiona Hall

ImageFiona Hall is an Australian contemporary Sculptor and Artist. She is best known for her installations and taking common place things and transforming them to give them new meaning.

Her most recent exhibition Big Game Hunting has toured Australia and was recently on display at the Heide Museum of Modern Art.

In this particular exhibition she takes army uniforms and plaits and twists them into creatures, a human with a gas mask and a monkey among others.

Her work speaks to the political environment of war and has a poignancy I think is missed by many other contemporary and experimental artists.

  1. I’ve seen some of her work in Melbourne and Sydney and it certainly grabs peoples attention. It’s vulgar, yet beautiful, and once your looking, you don’t seem to be able to drag your eyes away.
