Louise Paramor: Palace of the Republic sculptures in Melbourne

A series of eight large-scale, collapsible paper sculptures inspired by the structure of honeycomb will dominate a major solo exhibition from Louise Paramor at NGV Australia, called Palace of the Republic.

An immersive and surreal landscape of more than 100 colourful sculptures, some reaching 3 metres, will transform NGV Australia, who have commissioned the work, each created by hand through a meticulous process of cutting and gluing layers of paper.

The Palace of the Republic works relate to a series of existing colourful plastic sculptures, a large number of which will also be on display in the exhibition. These plastic sculptures range in height from 20cm to 3m.

Each piece highlights the past decade of Paramor’s practice, divided into 5 sections reflecting her exuberant sense of fun and experimentation with colour, volume and scale.

Louise Paramor: Palace of the Republic will be on display at the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia at Federation Square, Melbourne from 17 November 2017 – 12 March 2018. Entry is free.
