Patricia Piccinini ‘A Miracle Constantly Repeated’ at Rising Festivaledit
Congratulations to Patricia Piccinini who has just unveiled A Miracle Constantly Repeated, a world premiere commission for the inaugural Rising Festival. The multi-room installation takes over the mythical Flinders Street Station Ballroom and surrounding chambers in the heart of Melbourne.
Opening on 26 May 2021 and continuing for several months, this is Piccinini’s most extensive hometown exhibition in two decades. Described as “an eco-system of hyper-real silicone sculptures, video, sound and light… Australia’s foremost visual artist will augment the ballroom’s architecture with enormous dioramas, sentient saplings, nurturing marine mammals and enormous life-sustaining foliage.”
