Gabriella Hirst is an Australian artist from Sydney. We met her while she was doing a residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris.
She works with a large variety of medias. She is one of the artists that was selected to take part in the Rotterdam exhibition « Rebellion with no cause » that is going to take place at Post–Office on December 14th.
Here is a video that presents the work she has been developping during her residency in Paris.
You can check more of her art here.

We had a very productive week in Rotterdam. We finished saturday evening with some drinks and the celebration of Martina’s birthday.
We met some amazing artists that we will present you better in the following weeks.
Time to leave and go back home
Conclusion of the workshop written on the way back to Paris. Working night-time kept awake by the enthusiasm !
The three goals that we wanted to reach were :
- settling on a common direction on how to approach the theme
- agreeing on a common frame for the collaborative artwork that is the book
- thinking about the exhibition space and settling on how we are going to arrange it
Here is the summary of the outcome of these goals :
- We decided that we could work on 2 main points :
Developping the idea of a rebellion without a cause
Changing the cliché face of the Rebel (from bearded guy to shaved guy, change of weapons : no more guns and more internet etc…)
- We decided to mix the book and the bag and make a bookag.
- The exhibition plan is still a bit foggy but in development.
See you soon Rotterdam
When we told you we had a great weather in Rotterdam we weren’t joking.
