The Shadows Calling

presented by Detached in association with Dark Mofo

Feature

The Shadows Calling is an incredible exhibition by Patricia Piccinini and Peter Hennessey and is presented by DETACHED in the old Mercury building in Hobart, Tasmania.

The artists worked on this site specific exhibition for many months and the resulting work is a remarkable transformation of the bowels of an industrial building into a wonderland of strange yet familiar beings.

The exhibition was part of the Dark Mofo in 2015.
