Vintage wooden model boat, vintage ceramic and porcelain figurines, plastic police

Public Lecture

Penny Byrne meticulously constructs manipulated figurines from
damaged and antiquidated ceramic objects into artworks that fiercely
wield a political message. The use of fragile ceramics contradicts the
political issues evident in her work. Byrne’s satirical viewpoint
confronts a number of contemporary political issues that presents an
ongoing inquiry into popular culture and international politics.
