Solo presentation at Jerwood Visual Arts, London (2018)
Acrylic paint on cut tissue paper, 50-minute soundtrack (on headphones), stained beech plywood, powder coated metal.
‘Jerwood Solo Presentations 2018 showcases newly commissioned works by Rob Crosse, Susie Green and Georgia Horgan in three concurrent exhibitions at Jerwood Space, London. Selected from across the UK, the artists are each commissioned to produce a new and distinctive body of work.
Diverse in content and materials, the three solo presentations span painting, sculpture, installation, film, and photography, expanding upon each artist’s existing works to position sex, intimacy and desire in a socio-political context.
Susie Green’s solo presentation is comprised of new architectural scale paintings, delicate framed works on paper, sculptures and a recorded, looped soundtrack that both question and celebrate ornamentation, pleasure and the decorated body.
Within this large-scale installation, heart-shaped seating serves as fantasy sex-shop furniture, pop culture homage and interactive object all at once. Together, the works form a multisensory environment with female desire at the fore. Filled with jewel-like colours and tactile forms, the artist presents an immersive space for viewers to engage with the ornamental and physical properties of the work and each other’.
