Simryn Gill On the Shelf
27 September - 18 October 2014
Utopia Art Sydney is delighted to stage Simryn Gill's exhibition On the Shelf.
This will be Gill's first solo exhibition with our gallery. Fittingly, it is also the first opportunity, for those who didn't make it to the 2013 Venice Biennale, to
appreciate the essence of Here art grows on trees, Gill's exhibition for the Australian Pavillion.
On the Shelf includes the suite of 8 prints from the Eyes and Storms series that were in Venice, a series of works on paper that directly relate to the large scale piece Let Go, Let's Go, which is now in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent (Belgium), along with the miniature version of Half Moon Shine, which was the basis for the large version shown in Venice and now at the Heide
Museum of Modern Art, Victoria.
We thank Catherine de Zegher for her insightful essay. Her connection with the artist, as curator for the Australian Pavillion, gives her a unique perspective.
We also acknowledge and appreciate the contribution made by the Australia Council, and the many others who supported Gill's exhibition in Venice.
