Things I once knew

The art of Patrick Hall

Things I once knew is a survey exhibition of the work of Tasmanian artist and furniture maker Patrick Hall, representing the development of his artistic practice from the mid-1980s to the present.

Hall is best known for his elaborate, intricately crafted cabinets that use images, sculptural elements, models, found objects and text as vehicles for complex and layered narratives. Hall’s work has been built around humble objects and the histories, memories and stories they generate or evoke.

The exhibition includes 30 cabinets and wall pieces, characterised by a high level of craftsmanship and the skilful manipulation and combination of both materials and associations. The sequence of works is structured loosely around the thematic, stylistic and narrative threads in Hall’s work, such as the use of redundant technologies, biographical elements, or more existential concerns about time, memory and randomness.
Curator: Peter Hughes
