Peekaboo Gallery is delighted to be re-showing nationally-acclaimed Gotham artist Tarryn Gill's spectacular Guardian (Scallop).
Based in Perth, Western Australia, Tarryn Gill is a nationally recognised multidisciplinary artist who works across sculpture, video, theatre set and costume design and performance. Her aesthetics and materials are heavily informed by her background in competitive calisthenics and dance, and her most recent works are large soft sculptural forms, related to the female uncanny body. Gill has held solo exhibitions at the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide, Sophie Gannon Gallery, Melbourne and MOANA Project Space, Perth. Her work is held in the collections of Artbank, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Kerry Stokes Collection and the Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art. Through her solo and collaborative practices, Gill has undertaken residency projects across Australia, in Argentina, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. Gill is represented by Gallery Sally Dan-Cuthbert, Sydney.
Showing at Peekaboo Gallery, 57 James Street Northbridge (opposite the Alex Hotel), until 15 May.
