The first exhibition in Australia by London-based artist Marianna Simnett brings together a body of video and sculptural work telling wicked tales of transformation with a cast of children, beasts, and mutants. Surveying the last six years of Simnett’s practice, alongside new work, this will be the largest solo exhibition of her moving image and sculptural work to date.
