"Sometimes I think I have a form of obsessive compulsion that drives my work. For as long as I can remember I have looked at, researched, collected and studied different objects, artworks and cultural materials until I reach an exhaustion point. I think I have now turned this compulsion over to my work and it as if each new work is an obsession that, once complete, allows me to move on to the next pot, or collage or painting, until that too is exhausted in a process that can continue ad-infinitum." - Glenn Barkley

AUCKLAND ART FAIR
The Cloud / AKL Waterfront
Booth D8
23 - 27 May 2018

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.
