Fiona Hall: All the King’s Men

Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide


‘All the King’s Men’ by Fiona Hall is the masterwork in her 2015 Venice Biennale exhibition Wrong Way Time. Made for the new Australian Pavilion in Venice, this installation includes 20 sculptures suspended in space that are made from military uniforms, bearing camouflage prints from several countries. Teeth, bones, horns and found objects adorn the mask-like heads and their ghostly, skeletal bodies. These hollow people of war and conflict represent the many who have fallen and those who are yet to fall in the name of nationhood. Read more.
