Michelle NIKOU, Sylvia's Jumper, 2013-16

Michelle Nikou: a e i o u

Friday 30 June - Friday 1 September 2017

In this exhibition of new and recent work, Adelaide-based Samstag Scholar and University of South Australia alumnus Michelle Nikou draws on surrealism to transform mundane domestic objects and materials into sculptures of humour, poignancy and marvel. Her work intentionally blurs and extends the boundaries between fine art and craft, utilising chance, psychological metaphor and juxtaposition to inventively mingle high and low art sources and cultural references with deadpan wit.

A NETS Victoria touring exhibition developed in partnership with Heide Museum of Modern Art, curated by Melissa Keys and Kendrah Morgan. Presented by the Samstag Museum of Art for the SALA Festival and FRAN Festival.
