Visiting the Grampians 2022
Hamilton Gallery is excited to announce that the skywhales, two monumental sculptures in the form of hot-air balloons by internationally renowned artist Patricia Piccinini, will be visiting the Southern Grampians region in May 2022.
Skywhalepapa, the artist’s most ambitious project to date, is a new companion piece for Skywhale and together they form a skywhale family. Following their debut together in Canberra, the sculptures will float across the skies of Australia as a National Gallery Touring Event throughout 2021 and 2022.
Commissioned by the National Gallery of Australia, with the support of The Balnaves Foundation, Skywhalepapa will fly alongside Skywhale on a two-year national tour, and then, possibly to international destinations as a part of the $1.3 million performative exhibition, Skywhales: Every heart sings.
