...like a siren it repeats
Sullivan+Strumpf | Sydney
24 August – 23 September 2019
We invite you to join us at the opening for Jemima Wyman's upcoming exhibition, ...like a siren it repeats, on Saturday 24 August 3–5pm, and artist talk from 4pm.
In …like a siren it repeats, Jemima Wyman presents new collages that continue her investigation into visual resistance. Wyman’s work focuses on camouflage and surveillance and how it is manifested in protest and biology. In this exhibition, she explores aposematism - a form of camouflage in which an animal’s colour and pattern (often yellow and black) function as a siren to warn off predators. This new work draws from and contributes to her MAS-archive (begun in 2008) that catalogues the attire of masked protesters from around the world.
