SULLIVAN+STRUMPF at ART BASEL HONG KONG
29 - 31 MARCH 2018
GALLERIES SECTION
BOOTH 3C16

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.

LINDY LEE
Divided Worlds: Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art
Art Gallery of South Australia
3 March - 3 June 2018

It is with great pleasure that Sullivan+Strumpf announce the inclusion of Lindy Lee in the 2018 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art. Lee’s epic work ‘The Life of Stars,’ made with the assistance of Urban Art Projects, features at the entrance to the Art Gallery of South Australia and will welcome audiences into the Biennial. Curator Erica Green says, ‘the exhibition titled Divided Worlds, recognises that we live in troubled times. However, rather than foretelling conflict, my focus has been on assembling an exhibition that celebrates the enduring role of art and culture. Divided Worlds offers an opportunity to experience an alternative dimension – one where “difference” is the natural order of things, and a strength to be celebrated.’

LINDY LEE
The Garden of Cloud and Stone

Chinatown Public Domain
Corner of Thomas Street and Ultimo Road, Sydney
Official Launch Friday, 16 February, 2.30pm

Lindy Lee's major new public commission in Sydney's Chinatown, The Garden of Cloud and Stone, will be launched on Chinese New Year by Clover Moore, Lord Mayor of Sydney.

Working in collaboration with Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture and Hill Thalis Architecture, Lee and her team at Urban Art Projects have created a 'garden' featuring dramatic clouds floating over Thomas streets, bronze scholars' rocks, a pavement composed of flung bronze components, and a natural stone water feature.

In ancient Chinese philosophy, clouds are considered a sign of good fortune. They represent the union of yin and yang because they are a fusion of the elements of water and air, sky and earth. Stones are a Chinese symbol of longevity, linked to yang energy - energy that is alive and unchanged for an immeasurable amount of time.

LINDY LEE
The Seamless Tomb
Sullivan+Strumpf Sydney
Opening Friday, 22 Sep | 6 - 8pm

Lindy Lee’s practice explores her Chinese ancestry through Taoism and Ch’an (Zen) Buddhism – philosophies that see humanity and nature as inextricably linked. She employs chance and spontaneity to produce a galaxy of images that embody the intimate connections between human existence and the cosmos. Her works are meditative, often revealing themselves through time. 

"There is a Zen koan (paradox) that requires the student to imagine being trapped in a seamless tomb. The darkness is so absolute and profound that not a single chink of light can penetrate. Here you are - entombed for eternity. Understandably you might feel paralysed, panicked, overwhelmed - even annihilated. The Zen question is: how can one find liberation in this situation? Actually, we are always stuck in this tomb - it is the nature of existence." – Lindy Lee, 2017
