Desire Paths to a Fictional World

Celebrating 25 years of Peter Hill’s Superfictions
Opening Celebration: Thursday 8 March, 6 - 8pm
Exhibtion dates: 8 March to 6 April
Peter Hill is a Glasgow-born Australian. For twenty-five years he has been creating Superfictions. These hybrid artworks merge installation art with literary fiction and the Internet. In 1989 he created his Museum of Contemporary Ideas, supposedly the biggest new museum in the world, bankrolled by Cameron Oil.
Peter Hill exhibited a selection of his Superfictions in the 2002 Biennale of Sydney at the MCA. He has also made projects at the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, and in the Project Space at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. In 2004, his book "Stargazing: memoirs of a young lighthouse keeper" won Scotland's main literary prize, a Saltire Award, for best First Book of the Year. He is currently working on a book called "Desire Paths to a Fictional World: Superfictions and Trompe-l'oeil."
