eX de Medici, The Wreckers, detail, 2018-2019. Watercolour and white gouache on paper, 114 x 590cm. Courtesy: the artist and Sullivan+Strumpf, Sydney.
Comprising two large works and one video work, this exhibition presents an enormous and intricate watercolour illustration, The Wreckers, and a Chinese painting album, Farmer and Foreigner, created in collaboration with Chinese-Australian artist Wei Rong Wu.
Spanning six metres, The Wreckers is a sprawling scene of violence and destruction, created in eX de Medici’s unique aesthetic, drawing on her background as a tattooist. The heavily coded work shows a mass of wrecked cars against a black star-spangled banner, adorned by flowers and interspersed with the names of “the worst people responsible for doing the worst things in the world”.
Exhibition opens: 3–5pm Saturday 30 November 2019
