As part of this years Dark Mofo (MONA) Patrick Hall is presenting his new work ‘If They Should Accidentally Fall’ at Narryna (TMAG) in June. Despard Gallery has represented Patrick for over twenty years, exhibiting his work in Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney, Chicago and New York.

Patrick Hall is considered one of Tasmania‚Äôs most unique visual artists. The sculptural installation, ‘If They Should Accidentally Fall’, is constructed by individual components, capturing figures build from recycled materials, LED lights and spirit bottles. Overlaid with narrative text, suggestive of a devotional script or parable, Patrick creates a place of intimate confession to explore the passing of time and the slow erosion of belief.

‘If They Should Accidentally Fall’, will be the feature installation in Despard Gallery’s booth at Sydney Contemporary 2019. 

“If They Should Accidentally Fall seeks to create a secular, sacred space where fragile vessels spill secrets, longings and desires. It is a place where confessions are made and shared, where voices seep and search for solace. A place where we can bear witness to our own human frailty” – Patrick Hall, 2019
