A conversation with Sultana Savvi

Irini Miga interviews Sultana Savvi


Sultana Savvi is a painter based in Zurich, Switzerland. With her works she explores what abstraction means to her in today’s world. Savvi’s practice is inextricably tied to process and manages to reveal something almost primordial. There, layers of paint build over time, leaving the works with the sense of constant evolution and reform. Speaking to the expansive nature of universe, ethereal forces capture emotions making her painting works whimsical.

Irini Miga

Can you tell us a little bit about your background and how you started painting?


Sultana Savvi 

I come from a small village in Florina, Sklithro. My parents were farmers, simple everyday people, who had nothing to do with art. While my mother saw my calling to painting, she did not know how she could possibly help me with my love for art, as she told me later on at an old age. When I was 11 years old we settled in Zurich, Switzerland. Initially, for livelihood reasons, I graduated from trade school. So I worked for about 15 years as a bank clerk. At the same time, I attended courses at the School of Fine Arts in Zurich. During this time, while I was still attending art classes, I got married and my two children were born. There was always a desire to attend the Zurich School of Fine Arts. After finishing art high school, which is a prerequisite for admission to the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), at the age of 47, my dream became a reality. All this time I was actively painting. My first exhibition took place in 2003 and since then I have been exhibiting either individually or collectively.

DL Review Daniel Hölzl at DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM / Berlin

The nose of a plane bares down on the entering visitors; stripped of its wings, it appears as a silvery shark out of the blue. It is a dramatic start to Daniel Hölzl’s first solo exhibition, GROUNDED at DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM. Mainly working with site-specific installation, Hölzl piqued Berlin’s interest with his presentation of exposed interior spaces in AUSHANG for 48 hours Neuköln, 2021, and BAIT during Berlin Art Week, 2021. In each instance, a room was precisely measured to enable a replica to be constructed from parachute fabric. Once sewn together, it was inflated out of a window like an enormous room-shaped balloon, illustrating the architectural volume of the corresponding space. While these works float with the lightness of air, the current series on display questions what and who stays grounded.

END-OF-LIFE, cycle one 2022, Carbon fiber and glass fiber monocoque fuselage, recycled paraffin wax, 850 x 125 Ø 125 cm / 334 2/3 x 49 1/4 Ø 49 1/4 in, Unique. Copyright: Daniel Hölzl, Courtesy: DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM, Berlin, Photo: Jens Ziehe

 

The title of the exhibition derives from the aeronautic community. A term used when a plane has reached the end of its life or is forbidden to take off. Hölzl is interested in the life cycle of materials and their transformation after the death of their current use. The concept is mirrored in the first piece, the gutted fuselage of the DA42-VI aircraft, named END-OF LIFE cycle one (2022). Diagonally suspended from the back wall, the aircraft guides you down the stairs onto the tarmac for END-OF-LIFE cycle two (2022). The flooring is a direct replica of the runway at the former inner-city Templehof Airport turned park. During the blockade of Berlin, planes were said to be landing every 90 seconds to deliver vital supplies to those cut off in the West. Constructed from 100% recycled carbon fibre imprinted with paraffin wax, the surface is rigid under foot and carpets the entirety of the downstairs. The black carbon peers through the white wax, producing an impressive simulacrum of the well-worn landing strip.

An Interview with Jonathan Ehrenberg on the occasion of his Solo Show “The Capital of Fine is OK” at Essex Flowers, in New York

19 Monroe Street, NY, NY 10002



Interior, clay and mixed media on panel 24 x 18 x 8 inches, 2022


Jonathan Ehrenberg’s new reliefs are handmade riffs on his digital output that explore how changes in the body affect the mind. In their post-digital afterlife, mouths and other parts begin to eat themselves, dispersing the body among its own perceptions. Jonathan currently has a solo show of these new reliefs at Essex Flowers. The exhibition’s title “The Capital of Fine is OK” is borrowed from his three-year-old daughter, Mia, who has a curious obsession with geography. One day she was rattling off countries and capitals—The capital of France is Paris. The capital of China is Beijing—when she got a big idea: The capital of Fine is OK! As the artist watched language form the intuitive, arbitrary, oddly associative building blocks of his daughter’s expanding reality, he also saw his father’s world focus in on bodily concerns: arthritic joints, a deteriorating hip. His new series of wall reliefs similarly mines the rattle-bag of the unconscious as it pieces the world together and segments the self into parts. *
