Gigi’s sculptures have evolved from disembodied human appendages that inhabit the streets of Melbourne, into these hybrids that utilise old and new.
Taking disused and forgotten objects and making them into something that has ‘social value’, she resurrects these objects and gives them new life. She looks for clues behind our tendency to attribute meaning to consumables that give us a sense of belonging.
The hybrids take on their own identities. Her dark humour stirs the viewer; lifelike in appearance, viewers sometimes express visceral sensations when they experience these sculptures much like the vivid perception had with phantom limbs.
Gigi’s playful sculptures are created using various materials like clay, beads and fibres, along with vintage objects like a 1920’s clutch or a 1940’s adding machine. Her sculptures have been collected in USA, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
