“My practice is focused on bodies and relationships,” explains the Australian artist Patricia Piccinini, “the relationships between people and other creatures, between people and our bodies, between creatures and the environment, between the artificial and the natural.” Piccinini creates hypothetical life forms, unsettling previews of the creatures that could emerge from genetic crossbreeding. She often uses materials like silicone and human hair to make her sculptures even more realistic, and each takes a year to complete. These haunting morphologies should ensure post-show discussions on the ethics of biotechnology. —E.C.
