Mark Valenzuela
Exhibition
This unmissable new solo exhibition by Mark Valenzuela, the 2022 SALA feature artist, is timed to coincide with the launch of a new monograph dedicated to Valenzuela’s rich and varied practice. Still Tied to a Tree is a sprawling, multifaceted work, combining ceramics and painting to generate an effect that is spectacular, dizzying and disturbing in equal measures. A sense of chaos gives way to an intriguingly layered, maximalist installation that intertwines Valenzuela’s disparate ideas and experiences, influenced by a life lived between two homes: Australia and the Philippines. This new work explores ideas of territoriality, boundaries, and space-making using fantastical sculptures and images.
