S/2 Gallery visit

July 11, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join us to visit Where Were You at Night, a second in a trilogy of group shows at the gallery where a work of literature forms a conceptual framework for an exhibition and is accompanied by a new edition and reprinting of a story at S|2 Gallery. The first group show, House of the Sleeping Beauties, took its title from a novella written by Japanese author Yasunari Kawabata. Where Were You at Night is titled after a collection of fourteen short stories written by Brazilian author Clarice Lispector, starting in 1951. Like this collection of stories in Lispector’s work, the exhibition itself encourages many narratives and remains open-ended in its exploration of materiality. The artists in the exhibition include many female artists, including Olga de Amaral, Jagoda Buic, Kim Lim, and Carole Seborovski, amongst others. Shifting between ideas of the hand-made, of touch, holes and weaving, the exhibition seeks to capture a sense of feelings intertwined..

S|2 is a secondary Sothebys gallery space operating separately from the auctions and the programme is laid out independently of the auction seasons. Since 2017, the gallery’s exhibition programme is organised by Darren Leak and Bianca Chu, with support by gallery manager Liberty Paterson. The aim of the space is to mount research-based, critical exhibitions focusing on the edges of art history and to shine a light on artists that may be under recognised by the market.
