ARTS BREAKFAST

Arts Breakfast at the arts end of the world

Performing Sculptures with Simone Slee

The SASA Gallery in UniSA hosted a group exhibition curated by Olga Sankay. Simone Slee is one of the exhibiting artists who is renowned for her performance based sculptural works that humorously play with failure and vulnerability. She’s designed sculptures to be propped up by goldfish and cucumbers which inevitably fall over. Thought bubbles have become momentary sculptures captured in time by photos turned into posters. Simone is the Head of Sculpture and Spatial Practice at the Victorian College of the Arts in the University of Melbourne and has a background in Landscape Architecture. She takes Nikki Marcel through the Lost for Words exhibition and the meaning of performative and abfunction – a term she’s coined.
