Patricia Piccinini is known as Australia’s foremost artist exploring the relationship between humanity and technology, and the ethical tensions it inspires in the viewer. Daniel speaks to the Melbourne-born artist at her latest show A Miracle Constantly Repeated — where life-like silicon sculptures are spread among the hidden upper rooms of Melbourne’s Flinders Street Station. The city’s COVID-19 lockdown means the show, when it re-opens, will now run until the end of August.
