AiR Sandnes is proud to present this exhibition by the Australian artist Amanda Wolf. The exhibition will be showing a body of work that has been created during the six weeks of Amandas residency
Rejecting the often idealised notion of the bathroom as a hygienic personal sanctuary, Deep Clean reimagines the abject realities of shared wet zones and the fantasies which they breed. Responding to what gets thrown on the floor, washed down the drain and played out in the mirror, Amanda Wolf reflects on the materiality of personal care and private rituals of cleaning and bodily play through a rolling exchange between performance and sculptural experiments.
This is a one night only event and a preview of works produced through the AiR Sandes residency program.
Amanda Wolf is a contemporary artist and Co-Director of the SX+ Collective born in Brisbane, Australia. Her practice is interested in mask play as a device in which to discuss the comedic and melodramatic potential of the physical body, particularly when applied to experiences of pleasure and vulnerability. Wolf graduated from the Queensland College of Art with First Class Honours in 2013 in addition to a Diploma of Fine Art from the Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE in 2005. Wolf’s exhibition history includes solo projects for Cut Thumb ARI (Brisbane), First Draft (Sydney), Strange Neighbour (Melbourne), Sawtooth (Launceston) and The Hold (Brisbane). Wolf has also participated in group exhibitions and major arts festivals across Australia including Melbourne Fringe Festival and This Is Not Art Festival (Newcastle). This is Wolf’s first exhibition in Norway.
