UNMAPPED

28.02 – 07.04.2108

A sole exhibition by Andrew Sutherland

Nothing on the surface of the earth is unmapped. The remotest parts of our planet now boast permanent residences or tourist groups. To truly find the contemporary unmapped, one needs both imagination and narrative in the face of adventure. Delving into his extensive archive of National Geographic and nature books found at second-hand markets Andrew Sutherland charts a subtle journey of artistic exploration into colour and pictorial space. The range of works in this his 4th solo exhibition at Salon 91 read, in part, like a latitude chart of environments ranging from deserts to icier Polar Regions. The works enact an imaginary dwarfing of the single figure bearing witness to the scene, inviting the viewer to clasp the dream of untouched land with a sprinkling of active imagination.

The historical idea of the explorer is someone who visits a place with little or no human presence; this was usually associated with remote spaces. Today’s adventurers have to seek the possibly less remote but more unpopular places to enact a remembrance of self-dependence as the Antarctic and Mount Everest become ever more popular with adventure tourists. The yearning for a solitary confrontation with the majestic natural reveals the ironic truth that one has to be a little bit alone to feel truly connected.

It’s a curiously exciting time to be alive. Progress on interplanetary travel has recently taken a leap forward with Elon Musk’s Teslar now on it’s way to Mars. The Internet and social media enable us to be constantly in communication with one another and yet we feel more alone than ever before. Andrew Sutherland’s exhibition approaches all these contradictory feelings, providing micro-narratives within the colour shifts and foliage of his canvases that suggest the deepest impulses behind our technology and progress may be the simple yearning to confront our humanity in the spaces of the unmapped.

TURBINE ART FAIR 2017

13 – 16.07.2107

BOOTH # GH14 | TURBINE ART FAIR

The Turbine Art Fair has established itself as a significant event on the SA Arts Calendar, presenting rare and crucial opportunities to Collectors and Artists alike. This Fair has won us over through its fantastic electric atmosphere, its high level of organization, and most notably in remaining absolutely committed to its intention to promote emerging talent and to nurture a new collectors base, ideas which resonate greatly with the core philosophy of our gallery.

Since its inception in 2008, Salon Ninety One has served as a platform for both emerging and established South African artists of all disciplines to gain exposure through sharing their creativity and vision. The Artists exhibiting with Salon Ninety One have all excelled in their respective fields, with their names quickly gaining recognition across South Africa and abroad. This year we are proud to be representing Andrew Sutherland, Black Koki, Cathy Layzell, Heidi Fourie, Jordan Sweke, Kirsten Beets, Kirsten Sims, Linsey Levendall, Paul Senyol and Zarah Cassim. These Artists embody the gallery’s signature style and reflect the astounding growth and promise of local talent.

Salon Ninety One will be exhibiting at the Turbine Art Fair, for the fourth consecutive year bringing accessible, affordable contemporary art from Cape Town to both seasoned collectors and first-time buyers in Johannesburg. Visit us at Booth GH14, Turbine Hall from the 13th to the 16th of July 2017. Please call 021-424-6930 for further information.

SHELTER

25.01 – 25.02.17

A solo exhibition by Andrew Sutherland.

“He stepped gingerly, eyes fixed to the ground below him. He was carefully observing the minutest details of the forest floor, scanning for edible morsels amongst the fallen leaves. The dense canopy overhead allowed the trickle of glittering light to dance upon the mulch, confusing the eye with the illusion of movement, either that of friend or foe. His well-rehearsed movements provided him the opportunity for introspection. He had made so many new discoveries here in this unknown world within himself. He had found the wilderness to be like a still, glassy lake, inadvertently providing a mirror to his physical and mental condition. He suddenly felt the ground shift slightly beneath his feet and, before he could regain control, he stumbled clumsily. Quietly cursing his carelessness he realised he had roused the attention of an unknown creature close-by. He heard the crunch of sticks under large feet, and he turned to observe his observer…

Andrew Sutherland sinks into the well-worn and muddy shoes of the adventurer for his latest body of work, Shelter. Through the narrative of this exhibition we can identify with the protagonist, experiencing the ultimate self-propelled voyage of the intrepid explorer and lone personality out to forge a re-imagined connection with nature.”

PAPER IS YOU III

29.04 – 21.5.2016

Featured Artists:
Gabrielle Raaff
Paul Senyol
Andrew Sutherland
Berry Meyer
Kirsten Beets
Elsabé Milandri

ABOUT:
Paper Is You III is an exclusively paper-based exhibition, which focuses on the diversity and richness of paper as artistic medium. This is the third instalment in a range of exhibitions by the same name which have been hosted by Salon91 since 2011, titled after a poem written by artists Wessel Snyman and Katrine Claassens (who have both exhibited at the gallery). All too often art is is only considered ‘Art’ when it is an oil on canvas piece. Paper Is You challenges this preconception and celebrates the magic of paper-based artwork in all its forms and applications, as well as the incredible ways in which this carefully selected group of artists engage with this age-old medium, working both within and against the confines of the medium. There will be individual works by all of the participating artists on view, as well as collaborative artworks.
