The Long Awaited Playing Cards x Patricia Piccinini
Third Drawer Down in collaboration with Patricia Piccinini presents the Curious Affection collection - a collection of art objects and accessories celebrating one of Australia's most successful artists and her incredibly moving, unique work.
A bit about this work? Well, The Long Awaited is currently on display as part of her exhibition at GOMA & is it made of silicone, fibreglass, human hair, leather, plywood and clothing. When asked about this work Patrica says "It is one thing to argue for/against cloning when it is just an intellectual issue. However, things change if you have a mother or son who might need it. I like to think that my work understands that the point at which 'good' becomes 'bad' does not stand still, which is why it is so difficult to find. Ethics are not set like morals, they have to be constantly negotiated." More than meets the eye - always.
