11 July 2011 | Sculptor Patricia Piccinini is currently holding her first solo exhibition in Turkey at Arter in Istanbul.

Titled
Hold Me Close to Your Heart, the exhibition comprises various works dating from 1997 to the present and spans a wide range of mediums including sculpture, video, drawing and installation. Highlights include her 2011 works The Lovers and Eulogy.

The exhibition follows on from Piccinini’s
Beyond our Kin show at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery in Sydney in late 2010. Curated by Başak Doğa Temür, it deals with contemporary issues surrounding consumerism, science, new technologies, media culture and the construct of nature.
