Pascale Giorgi

Pascale Giorgi

Pascale’s works always trigger a smile. While humour has a central place in her practice, Pascale’s work is also deeply serious, addressing complex issues surrounding place and identity. Often depicting everyday life scenes, such as the office or the garden, Pascale transforms these humble scenes into something absurd and funny, in the process casting doubt on notions of authenticity and the standardisation of taste.

 — Miranda Johnson, Hatched Curatorial Fellow & Out of Bounds Co-Curator

Artist Profile

Walyalup/Fremantle-based artist Pascale Giorgi’s wide-ranging practice often draws on her cultural heritage as an Italo-Australian, employing playfulness and humour to subvert well-known symbols and expressions of classical Italian culture. The question of authenticity and the construction and representation of cultural identity, history, and belonging are central elements in Giorgi’s work for Out of Bounds.

A graduate of Curtin University (2015) and a HATCHED alumnus (PICA, Perth, 2016), Giorgi’s recent exhibitions include Putting on Clown Makeup, Goolugatup Heathcote (Perth, 2022); Cloisterfuck (with Guy Louden), Private Island (Perth, 2021); Sculpture by the Sea (Cottesloe, 2021); It’s okay baby you’ll be reborn, Cool Change Gallery (Perth, 2019); AGRIFUTURA, in collaboration with Benedetta Mori, Spazio Lum (Lucca, Italy, 2019); Il Venere Trasforma, developed with Italian sound artist Simone Grande, RONZII Fuco Contemporary (Pisa, Italy, 2019). Giorgi was awarded the main prize, Melville Contemporary, 2021, and in the same year was a finalist in the Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award.
