SANNÉ MESTROM
There is a Poem
Sullivan+Strumpf | Sydney
20 July - 17 August 2019

Open reception on Saturday, 20 July 2019

S+S Sydney is pleased to present Sanné Mestrom's There is a Poem, 20 July - 17 August 2019. Continuing Mestrom's interest in human behaviour, There is a Poem reflects on how we move through our daily lives and the ways in which we perform our bodies in the built environment - particularly in the public realm. The exhibition will consider how the physical world shapes us, at times pushing us together and other times holding us apart.

CONTOUR 556
CANBERRA PUBLIC ART BIENNIAL

Lake Burley Griffin
Aspen Island / Bowen Place
Kingston Arts Precinct
Henry Holland Park
5 - 28 October 2018

Featuring Tony Albert, Sanné Mestrom and Alex Seton

Tony Albert, Sanné Mestrom and Alex Seton are included in Contour 556 2018 which opens today in Canberra. Contour 556 is a free public art event over three weeks presenting artworks and performances by 60 artists in the world famous public realm and national cultural icons around Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra. It is unique in the field of public sculpture and performance events as it takes place in a consciously designed and culturally layered landscape, in one of only three designed capital cities.

Tony Albert's Exploring the new frontier is a vast installation of 109 individual works on paper installed at Commonwealth Place 'East Space'. Sanné Mestrom's sentinel-like, Sphinx in Repose (Kneeling) has been positioned on Commonwealth Avenue opposite Henry Rolland Park; and Alex Seton's towering Monument to No, provides a counterpoint to Canberra's grandiose public monuments, positioned alongside the central basin of Lake Burley Griffin.

The festival site is a place with deep cultural and heritage overlays. All artworks and performances are site specific, drawing inspiration from or reflecting on the cultural or physical character of Canberra. The sense of place of the Canberra lakeside landscape resonates with the artworks and performances. The connections to Canberra's history provoke a variety of responses from the public that embed a memory of place. The event reinforces the beauty of the designed landscape, and recognises landscapes hidden from view through design. It presents stories of Australia political, cultural and physical history. It includes stories from all Australians, from our past and our future.

THE WAVES: a group exhibition upping at the shores of heteronormative sanctity
Curated by Kate Britton
Sullivan+Strumpf | Sydney
18 August - 15 September 2018

Opening reception on Saturday, 18 August, 3 - 5pm
Curator talk in conversation with Diana Baker Smith from Barbara Cleveland and Thea Perkins at 4pm

Including artists: Karen Black, Ohni Blu, Polly Borland, Barbara Cleveland, Christine Dean, Joanna Lamb, Lindy Lee, eX de Medici, Sanné Mestrom, Judy Millar, Dawn Ng, Thea Perkins, Katy B. Plummer, Justine Youssef & Leila El Rayes, Hiromi Tango, Angela Tiatia and Jemima Wyman

The Waves borrows its title from Virginia Woolf's novel of the same name, in which many voices unite in a single narrative. This exhibition likewise unites many voices to tell a single yet multivalent story. This story is about what happens in a white cube occupied by women and non-binary voices, and why we should be listening.

The Waves brings a diverse group of artists into a conversation about feminism, bodies, access to and occupation of space, collective action and gestures of intersectionality. In making their work, each of these artists chip away at the walls and barriers that are thrown up by patriarchal systems, biological determinism, trans-exclusionary feminism, colonialism - the list goes on.

The feminist project has been characterised by waves, a lapping at the shores of heteronormative sanctity. The works presented from these artists engage with different aspects of this project: political, social and labour-based action; reclamation and celebration of diverse bodies and identities; intersectionality; and an emergent collective anger - #metoo.

In bringing together selected works from Sullivan+Strumpf's roster of artists with guest artists, The Waves establishes new lines of sight between the work of diverse women and non-binary people.

SANNÉ MESTROM
Black Paintings
McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery
29 July - 11 November 2018

Sanné Mestrom's Black Paintings opens this Sunday, 29 July 2018, at McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery. Made from un-dyed spun wool mounted on steel frames, Mestrom's Black Paintings derive from a series of minimal abstract paintings by the American painter Frank Stella from the 1960s. Flat, sharp-edged and masculine, Stella's works exemplify the influential theory of modernism proposed by American critic Clement Greenberg - that painting was progressively refined to its surface qualities. Conversely, Mestrom's series celebrates the rough texture and comforting qualities of wool and the associated notions of weaving as a feminine craft. Stella's severe and austere canvasses are re-posed as endearing sculptural objects and installations, complemented by a series of delicate gouache paintings.

MELBOURNE ART FAIR
2 - 5 AUGUST 2018
Southbank Arts Precinct

with Gregory Hodge, Sam Jinks, Sanné Mestrom, Hiromi Tango and Yang Yongliang

Commissioned by Melbourne Art Foundation and MLC Life Insurance, Hiromi Tango recently performed Lizard Tail (Dawn) on Melbourne's Southbank Art Precinct, weaving through the city's iconic cultural landmarks and institutions, coming to rest alongside ACCA (Australian Centre for Contemporary Art), the 2018 home of Melbourne Art Fair.

The performance, Lizard Tail (Dawn) explores human interaction with the urban environment and our constant connectivity to devices; ruminating on the mystery of those fleeting moments in the early hours, just before we awaken, when the conscious and subconscious become blurred. In Tango's word, 'The Lizard Tail is an accumulation of those things that are just out of the grasp of our consciousness, that we carry with us nonetheless.'

Join us at booth D8 for a program of artist talks at 11.30am during the VIP preview on Wednesday 23 May, and from 12.30pm on Thursday 24 May 2018.

Sullivan+Strumpf will be participating at Auckland Art Fair 2018 (Booth D8) with a presentation of works by Glenn Barkley, Sanné Mestrom and Richard Lewer. Richard Lewer presents Redheads, a series of portraits, which explore his own experience growing up as "a ginger" and his continuing interest in cultural representations of redheads and the traditions of portraiture. Sanné Mestrom will show ceramic objects from the series, Homer and the Ancient Poets, each the product of time constrained by motherhood; every form the result of what could be achieved in the short bursts of time allowed. Glenn Barkley will present a selection of coiled earthenware vessels, including obsessively patterned pots with tiny "pox" holes. Angela Tiatia's HD video, The Fall, originally commissioned by the Australian War Memorial in 2017, is presented in Project Space P15. The Fall draws on the accounts of survivors of the Battle of Singapore during the Second World War. We look forward to welcoming you to the fair.

In her latest exhibition 'Corrections', Mestrom expands her focus to a subject that has figured prominently in the history of sculpture: the female nude. This collection of inventive and playful sculptures explores the changing physicality of the female body, inspired by her own pregnancy. Describing her work as ‘playable sculpture’, Mestrom uses concrete, steel, bronze, and clay as a means of exploring a range of subtle (and not so subtle) bodily ‘corrections’.

Meet the Artists 
MCA, Sydney
Veolia Lecture Theatre
140 George Street
The Rocks
1 Feb | 630-8 pm

Moderated by Mark Hughes, hear from Sanné Mestrom and Sally Smart on how their work expands traditional notions of painting and sculpture by incorporating fabric and found objects. In different ways, their work begins with the body and its imaginary potential.

Sometimes subversive in their use of materials, the artists will discuss how they work with materials in different combinations, exploring the relationship between viewers and objects and the importance of different histories, including art and literature, to their art-making
