the body electric
Showcases the work of one of Australia’s most significant contemporary artists
Australian photo-media artist Pat Brassington has an incisive ability to infuse the familiar with the fantastic. Her work explores the domestic uncanny, psychoanalysis and bodily distortion, using a surrealist aesthetic charged with a feminist edge.
This exhibition from the Gallery’s collection traces her interest in the body as a fluid and flexible form. Featuring work from the 1990s alongside more recent work, it considers the haunting presence of the body in Brassington’s photographs and her particular use of visceral and allegorical imagery.
