Sullivan+Strumpf | Singapore
17 January - 16 February 2020
Sullivan+Strumpf is pleased to present Passages, a solo exhibition of new works in porcelain by Australian artist Kirsten Coelho.
The first showing of Kirsten Coelho’s work in Singapore and her debut presentation with Sullivan+Strumpf, Passages explores ongoing themes of social history and material culture. The series examines the physical and metaphorical changes that occur when one leaves their home and the notion of the heroes’ welcome when one returns. This is translated through a body of work investigating the objects we take with us on our journey, and how our perception of said objects is altered by different historical and cultural contexts.
Through Coelho’s porcelain and metal compounds, Passages synthesises constructed narratives that attempt to interpret themes of alteration, versatility, and metamorphosis.
The work in this exhibition has been generously supported by the South Australian Government through Arts South Australia.
