The Ghillies

April 8th, 2014 to June 15th, 2014

Polixeni Papapetrou’s The Ghillies is presented in a solo exhitbion at Benalla Art gallery. Papapetrou engages part reality, part fantasy moving through the landscape, using the rich terrain as a backdrop for her narratives about the transitional space of childhood. Papapetrou’s art practice has involved an intimate collaboration with her children and their friends for over a decade. As they have grown and transformed, so too have the roles they perform and spaces they inhabit.
