Biografía

 

(Fuente: artistsprocesses.com)

  Patricia Piccinini nació en Sierra Leona, África, en 1965, y se trasladó a Australia en el año 1972. En la actualidad, vive y trabaja en Melbourne.

 Entre 1989 y 1991 estudia pintura en el Victorian College of the Arts de Melbourne. En la Universidad Nacional de Australia (Canberra) obtiene el bachillerato en artes con mediación en Historia de la Economía entre los años 1985 y 1988.

 En el año 1994 comenzará su labor de coordinación de una serie de muestras en la Galería de Arte The Basement en Melbourne, que la ocupará hasta 1996. Ha trabajado para las galerías Roslyn Oxley9 de Sydney, Tolarno de Melbourne y Robert Miller en Nueva York. En la actualidad, es representada por la galería Yvon Lambert de Nueva York.

 Es una de las más destacadas artistas australianas de los últimos años, y por ello se la encomendó representar al país en la Bienal de Venecia en el año 2003.
