Patricia Piccinini's Sky Whale is back! It will be seen floating over the Yarra Valley early November 22

Is it a cow, is it a plane? Nope, it's a Sky Whale!

Five years ago we saw the huge dysmorphic whale-like, and udder heavy hot air balloon floating over Canberra. 

The curious creature was originally created for the Centenary of Canberra in 2013, by contemporary artist Australian Patricia Piccinini.

Patricia is known for her large-scale sculptures which blur the lines between human and animal characteristics, seeking to explore the boundaries between the artificial and natural worlds. 

Exhibition 'Through Love' features the work of Patricia Piccinini and Australian Modernist Joy Hester, from November 24, 2018 at TarraWarra Museum of Art. This exhibition will feature more than 50 works, including a new major sculpture by Piccinini and rarely-seen works by Hester. 

These artworks examine the complex spectrum of human and non-human behaviour involving love and maternal devotion. Looking into relationships and connections formed between animals and humans, animate and inanimate objects.

In the lead up to 'Through Love' you’ll be able to spot Skywhale hovering over the Yarra Valley in the early hours of November 22.

Patricia Piccinini and Joy Hester: Through love  is on at the TarraWarra Museum of Art from November 24, 2018 to March 11, 2019. More info here
