Fiona Hall Biography

Fiona Hall is a leading contemporary Australian artist. Working across painting, collage, printmaking, photography, sculpture, video, and installation, Hall has exemplified her skill in a diverse range of media in a career spanning over four decades. After initially enrolling for a Diploma of Painting at East Sydney Technical College, Hall became more preoccupied with photography. She exhibited her works for the first time in Thoughts and Images: An Exploratory Exhibition of Australian Student Photography at the Ewing and George Paton Galleries, University of Melbourne, in 1974.

Hall’s choice of material is central to her artistic practice as she attempts to address the relationship between nature and contemporary issues such as globalisation and consumerism. Hall’s fascination with the natural world is an ongoing theme throughout her oeuvre and was explored in Fall Prey, her project for dOCUMENTA (13), in which she constructed the bodies of various threatened species (picked from the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources’ Red List) out of the military uniforms of their native countries.

A retrospective of the artist’s work was held at Queensland Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of South Australia in 2005; and a survey of her work was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. This toured to City Gallery in Wellington, New Zealand in 2008.

Hall was awarded the prestigious Contempora 5 Art Award in 1997 and the Clemenger Art Award at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne in 1999. Her work is held in collections at all major Australian institutions including: the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; and the Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane.
