Tarryn Gill: Dearly Beloved - Art Collector

Tarryn Gill, Dearly Beloved (detail) 2017. Mixed media (foam, sequined fabric, thread, gemstones, fimo), 30 x 26 x 31cm. Courtesy of The Artist and Hugo Michell Gallery, Adelaide.

Dearly Beloved is a new installation-based work by Tarryn Gill, developed from the Guardian series recently exhibited in the 2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art. Dearly Beloved draws heavily upon theatrical conventions, and reflects Gill’s interest in combining personal memories and family histories with imagery drawn from mythology to imagine a space between the earthly and other-worldly. Each of the sculptures in this installation is approached as either a self-portrait or a portrait of her immediate family, and suspended together from the ceiling. Each individual portrait becomes part of the larger installation - a family tree imagined as a constellation.
