ABOUT THE PRACTICE

This practice is best known for compelling public artworks and installations that respond to space and architecture with distinctive forms and ideas. They include kinetic works that move in space but are themselves, moving experiences. This is achieved by treating given site conditions and specificities as a finely tuned ecology – a place/space to host conceptual-aesthetic encounters with the capacity to give in embodied ways – physiologically, socially and psychologically. To do so, they register an inventive synthesis of concept, materiality (the found, manufactured, readymade or customised), hand labour and engineering to engage the public realm, characterised by an inbuilt sustainability, criticality and meaning to remain engaged with a site’s evolving social, historical and urban profile over time.

The signature kinetic series “Contours” harnessed the physics of nature (Simple Harmonic Motion) to swing chandeliers like pendulums over a bridge as their trailing lights “perform” ephemeral drawings in mid air eg Red Dragon and others (subsequent versions were commissioned for ZKM, Germany and the re-opening of Casula Powerhouse, Sydney). More recently, the Rainbow series of “objectless” art addressed environmental concerns. Unprecedented in concept and scale, this series induced natural double rainbows (not prisms or video projections) to appear within the museum’s monolithic colonial architecture instead of the open landscape where it commonly occurs.

BIOGRAPHY  

Shown widely on the international circuit, Suzann Victor’s artworks have attracted critical attention including at the 49th Venice Biennale; 2nd Asia-Pacific Triennial (Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane); 6th Havana Biennale; 6th Gwangju Biennale; 5th Seoul International Media Art Biennale; 6th Adelaide Biennale 2008: Australian! (2008), Casula Powerhouse, Sydney; Thermocline of Art (2007) at ZKM Centre for Art & Media, Germany, Art Basel Miami (STPI) 2014 and an extended showing at OÖ Kulturquartier (O.K. Center for Contemporary Art ) Linz, Austria. Most recently, Victor induced natural double rainbows to appear within the colonial architecture of the National Museum at the Singapore Biennale 2013. Her public artworks at high profile include World Square, Sydney CBD, Meritus Mandarin Hotel and National Museum of Singapore. Victor was nominated for the prestigious New York-based Civitella Ranieri Foundation Fellowship (2009) and the coveted artist residency at STPI (2014). Her signature series Contours of a Rich Manoeuvre was featured as the key artwork for Art Stage Singapore 2015 and voted its No.1 in Forbes 2015 list of Top Ten Must-See Artworks.  Victor completed her doctoral research on an Australian Postgraduate Award as well as the UWS Top Up Award in 2008.     

RESEARCH INTERESTS

This practice considers the performance of situated subjectivity where the state and individual vie for dominion over the drives that construct the body as what one has (the body as object), as what one is (the body as subject), and as what one becomes (the absent body). This marking and remarking of territories between the Self and Other locates the alien and intimate as part of the very foundation of being. A stint as 5th Passage’s Artistic Director (Singapore’s first corporate-sponsored artist-run space from 1992-1994) enabled a glimpse into the fragility of the state’s divergent desires (and dreams) where one performance can portray the disintegration of another, producing a distinctive cultural artefact – the absent body that thus problematizes if performance is at all possible – even that of an absent body?

The works that have since come into form animate image, materiality and movement express disembodiment founded upon a postcolonial framework, particularly, the inversion of the abject as a weapon of the weak – the performance of pain into power. Its elements re-present the absent body via a circuitry between the rituals of the everyday and the rituals of dispossession, thus preventing its tacit acceptance. In engaging architectural spaces, the works temporarily or permanently occupy historical, commercial, institutional and public spaces to conspire or challenge spatial or contextual dynamics. 

Here, the practice of space is also a practice of a lust for symmetry even as it seduces with form the formlessness of the abject. The works re-embody the notion of “site” and “counter-site” - the physical, conceptual, material etc - as that which enables a change of state, materially, performatively or otherwise, in respect to a disembodied aesthetic. The viewer’s body completes the circuit via induced perceptual or physiological responses including but not limited to mimicry – eye and body movements that perform in proxy of the absent body in kinetic works eg Contours Series, as an artefact of vision – objectless art where natural rainbows can be perceived indoors eg Rainbow Circle, or averting the gaze by ‘turning’ or ‘re-orientating’ the body from the institution to the non-institutional eg Still Waters, 5th Passage, Contours at Casula.
