Hyper Real explores the fundamental question: ‘what makes us human?’. Third Drawer Down Studio had a ball researching skin textures, exploring touch, feel and sight to create a collection of fun art wares to sit alongside this fascinating exhibition. Little trinkets to carry on the thought-provoking nature of Hyper Real.
The exhibition presents major works from early American pioneers George Segal, John De Andrea and Duane Hanson, celebrated Australian artists Patricia Piccinini, Ron Mueck and Sam Jinks, international masters Maurizio Cattelan (Italy), Berlinde de Bruyckere (Belgium), Evan Penny (Canada), Sun Yuan and Peng Yu (China) and many more.
