STPI Gallery is the only Southeast Asian gallery at The Armory Show 2019

Featuring Aaron Curry, Do Ho Suh, Amanda Heng, Jane Lee, Kim Lim, Suzann Victor, and Entang Wiharso

STPI Gallery presents most recent works by Aaron Curry, Jane Lee, Do Ho Suh, and Suzann Victor at The Armory Show. Curry’s effortless drawings in space, Lee’s ephemeral installation narratives, Suh’s intimate Rubbings and complex thread drawings, as well as Victor’s sensitive paper pulp constellations, are solid testaments to the manifold possibilities of printmaking.    

Suh’s acclaimed "Rubbing/Loving" series, which had a major showcase in Victoria Miro Venice last year, are both a celebration and documentation of the artist’s attachment to the artist studio at STPI, where he worked regularly over the past decade. His iconic architectural thread drawings are further explorations of home and identity. Curry’s dynamic Ghost Bone works transport visitors into the elusive realm between surface and depth, highlighting line and colour as tools for abstraction. Lee’s Flashback works are rigorous responses to materiality, capturing the themes of entrapment and freedom within its spectrum of panels. Victor’s innovative reversal of the role of paper pulp resulted in works of outstanding luminance and weightlessness.  

Other highlights include Kim Lim's prints, whose timeless, evocative motifs capture the paradox of stillness and continuous motion; Amanda Heng's collaborative work We Are the World – These Are Our Stories, which reconstruct memories through printmaking; and Entang Wiharso's Decoded works, which explore the pertinent subject of borders and division.

STPI is the only Southeast Asian gallery to take part in all three of the Art Basel fairs since 2013 and in 2017, it made its first-time participation in FIAC Paris. This year, STPI Gallery is the only Southeast Asian representative in The Armory Show.
