Until 8 September 2019

Group exhibition curated by Rafi Abdullah, featuring the work of Stephanie Comilang, Fyerool Darma, Agan Harahap, Takuji Kogo, Tristan Lim, Michael Lindeman and Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran

Poor Imagination borrows its title from artist and writer Hito Steyerl's term: the 'poor image'. The 'poor image' is characterised as having an atrocious quality which deteriorates as it is distributed, an image readily and easily accessible. It is dormant debris in the landscape of excessive image production. Comprised of ceramics, paintings, prints and new-media works, the exhibition features seven artists whose work - whether overtly or covertly - employ the 'poor image' or embody its characteristics. The exhibition is an allusion to the autonomy and agency that the 'poor image' offers, mediating the plausible imaginations that they propose.

ART BASEL HONG KONG 2019
29 - 31 March 2019
Hong Kong Exhibition & Convention Centre, Hong Kong, China

Galleries Section Booth 3C23
Encounters Section Booth EN12

Sullivan+Strumpf is delighted to participate in Art Basel Hong Kong 2019 with a presentation of works by artists with diverse practices in both two and three dimensions, including Tony Albert (Booth EN12 Encounters Section)Sydney Ball, Lindy Lee, Sam Leach, I Nyoman Masriadi, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, Alex Seton and Yang Yongliang.

The presentation includes some of the region's most exciting artists including a large-format painting by Indonesian-based I Nyoman Masriadi (b.1973, Gianyar, Bali). Masriadi’s practice combines superhuman figures with Indonesian cultural history, offering a biting social commentary on contemporary life and global pop culture. Created especially for ABHK 2019, Sri Lankan-born, Sydney-based artist Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran (b.1988, Colombo, Sri-Lanka) will show, Bi-Head, a polychrome and polished-bronze head, exploring the politics of sex, the monument, and pointing to the new possibilities to be found in gender fluid realms. Alex Seton (b.1977, Sydney, Australia) will present a pair of large-scale bronze and marble totems from his ‘Cargo’ series, a new body of work in which the artist depicts highly compressed bales of clothing, of the kind found in the second-hand clothes industry. Seton’s bronze and marble obelisks evoke the mesh of needs, concerns, environments and economies through which we are all connected. This sense of connectivity is also present inthe work of Lindy Lee (b.1954, Brisbane,Australia) in which she invokes a sense of deep time. Lee will present, Unnameable 2017, a large-scale bronzeFire Stone’and works on paper pierced and singed by flame. As each scorched mark stands for an individual moment, so too, the large bronze Fire Stone – borne of the marriage of metal and spontaneous eruptions – speaks to the infinite curve of time inherent to all life.Time, in an evolutionary sense, is also examined in Sam Leach’s finely executed oil paintings of animals and spacesuits. Leach (b. 1973 Adelaide, Australia) draws a connection between the legacy of the enlightenment found in the philosophy of Russian Cosmists and the distinctive styles of spacesuits, helmets and associated technology. Leach connects the constructed landscapes of the 17th and 18th century, the utopian ideals of 20th century formalist abstraction and the future implied by space exploration. Yang Yongliang (b.1980, Shanghai, China) will present video and photographic works exploiting a connection between traditional Chinese painting and the contemporary, implementing ancient oriental aesthetics and literati beliefs with modern language and digital techniques. Yongliang’s monochrome landscapes provide a counterpoint to a special presentation of works from the estate of the late Sydney Ball (1933-2017). Arguably Australia’s greatest colourist, Ball’s Infinexseries in automotive enamel on aluminium, comprises rigid geometric forms articulated in fields of contrasting colour – crisply chromatic formal assemblages of individual but related planes of colour which appear as if poised mid-motion.

Opening tomorrow, Saturday 13 October, 5 - 7pm

[email protected] Volume II is an expansion of the bold proclamations of Nithiyendran's institutional shows which have since evoled into a self-reflexive investigation of relationships and power, holding a mirror to the world at odds. Traces of Nithiyendran's personality are embedded, as sartorial flamboyance, but also as self-mockery. Self-portraiture, according to the artist, is a theme that runs through all his work, toeing the line between narcissism and self-parody. Playing along with the idea of the artist as a brand in today's age of screen culture, Nithiyendran's laughter is truly contagious.

A highlight of the presentation is Sydney Ball's Chromix Lumina 14, a large-scale work from the artist's Infinex series, his final and never-before-seen body of work. Realised in automotive enamel on aluminium, a method of manufacturing the artist devised out of physical necessity at the age of 81, Chromix Lumina 14 represents the pinnacle of Ball's lifeling research into the relationship between form, colour and light.

Angela Tiatia is included in Video Contemporary, curated by Kelly Gellatly; Karen Black has collaborated with Handpicked Wines to create an immersive-art-experience-cum-bar; Glenn Barkley will create a cabinet of curiosities filled with new vessel forms and collages; while Lindy Lee, Alex Seton and Tim Silver will present solo presentations for Installation Contemporary, curated by Nina Miall.

Featuring Yang Yongliang | Alex Seton | Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran | Darren Sylvester | Lindy Lee | Gregory Hodge

Sullivan+Strumpf is delighted to participate in Art Basel Hong Kong 2018 with a presentation of works by Yang Yongliang, Alex Seton, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran (Encounters Booth 3E10) Darren Sylvester, Lindy Lee and Gregory Hodge. Bringing together six artists with diverse practices in both two and three dimensions as well as new media, the presentation takes the pulse of contemporary visual art practice in the region.

Sullivan+Strumpf's presentation includes some of the region's most exciting artists and intriguing objects, including Alex Seton's, Clothing Bale 02 sculpted in Australian Wombeyan marble, part of a new series in which Seton draws on the second-hand clothing industry. Darren Sylvester's science-fiction-inspired oversize light jet print, Out of Life, features a model dressed in a 1970s mock space suit; the martian setting resonating with Lindy Lee's Horizons growing beyond the visible, a large-scale circular flung bronze sculpture. The virtual world of Yang Yongliang's VR work, Eternal Landscape, is influenced by ancient Chinese Song Dynasty paintings; the work's sense of a future-past providing a counterpoint to Gregory Hodge's acrylic paintings inspired by quotidian materials like carpet samples, but also the geology of the moon. Art Basel Hong Kong opens to the public on 29 March and continues until 31 March, we look forward to welcoming you to our presentation at booth 3C16.

BOOTH 3E10

For Art Basel Hong Kong 'Encounters' section curated by Alexie Glass-Kantor, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran will present two monumental works which continue his exploration of the politics of sex, the monument, gender and religion. Nithiyendran's increasingly experimental practice foregrounds an intensive investigation of ceramic technique alongside an increasingly apparent conceptual underpinning. In particular, the potential of scale has been explored in monumental ceramic installations such as Mud Men (National Gallery of Australia, 2017). Recent presentations at Dhaka Art Summit, 2018; The National, Sydney, 2017; Kuandu Biennale, Taiwan, 2016; Adelaide Biennial, 2016; and the Ian Potter Museum in Melbourne, have firmly established Nithiyendran as the region’s most exciting emerging artist.

Featured highlight on The Art Newspaper
Dispatch from Dhaka: five highlights from the fourth Art Summit
by Gareth Harris

"A series of garish, in-your-face idols are causing a stir at the Dhaka Art Summit (DAS). The totemic mixed-media statues, by the Sri Lankan-born artist Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, are described on the wall text as 21st-century “deities in drag” but Nithiyendran points out that the works are multivalent, referencing numerous sources including Hinduism, a religion where “multi-gender idols are a paradigm”, he says (the internet, pornography and fashion are his other sources)."

Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran's Idols was commisioned and produced by Artspace, Sydney and the Samdani Art Foundation for the Dhaka Art Summit 2018. The project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australian Council for the Arts, its funding and advisory body, and supported by the Australian Government through the Australian Culural Diplomacy Grants Program of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

RAMESH MARIO NITHIYENDRAN
In the Beginning
Ian Potter Museum, Melbourne
Until 26 Feb 2017

In The Beginning by Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran pushes the symbolic and material qualities of clay to produce iconoclastic sculptures that break the rules of the medium. Combining Hindu and Christian symbolism with the subversive imagery of internet memes, his wildly misshapen characters act as avatars through which to explore gender and eroticism, religion and popular culture, exoticism and outsider aesthetics.

RAMESH MARIO NITHIYENDRAN
In the Beginning
Ian Potter Museum, Melbourne
22 November - 26 February 2017

Nithiyendran's exhibition at the Potter represents an exciting development for the artist. Across an entire floor of the museum, vibrant colour and exuberant wall drawings contribute to an immersive environment within which the artist's idiosyncratic ceramic figures sit alongside a monumental unfired clay sculpture, a new bronze work, and a range of objects selected from the University of Melbourne's Cultural Collections, including ancient Greek pottery, Indian religious art and animal specimens from the Teigs Museum of Zoology.
