A Miracle Constantly Repeated

After holding Melbourne’s imagination for decades, the mysterious Flinders Street Station ballroom (and its surrounding hidden rooms) has opened to the public to become A Miracle Constantly Repeated – an ecosystem of hyper-real silicon sculptures, video, sound and light devised by Patricia Piccinini for RISING.

Piccinini has spent close to three decades exploring humanity’s relationship to technology and the environment. Her work has been exhibited at major Australian and international institutions and events including the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane; and the Vancouver and Venice biennales.

For her first extensive hometown show in almost 20 years, Australia’s pre-eminent visual artist will augment the ballroom’s architecture with enormous dioramas, sentient saplings, nurturing marine mammals and enormous life-sustaining foliage.

Commissioned by RISING and supported by the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government initiative.
