Simryn Gill

Simryn Gill (Malaysia/Australia, 1959) has shown extensively on the international area and participated in two Documentas, in 2007 and 2012. She represented Australia at the Venice Biennale in 2013. Finnish audiences will remember her two exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma: her solo presentation, in 1998, of the work Self-Seeds (now in the Kiasma collection) and her participation in the group exhibition ‘Six Routes to the Himalayas’ in 2000. Gill collects and makes objects, photographs, writes, experiments with various printing techniques. She often works on paper, and her work looks at paper from different perspectives: as support for images, as material for objects, as index of a process of entropic decay.
