I hold up my hands - S|2 is one of my favourite galleries in Mayfair. Contemporary well-designed interiors over two floors which work best with contemporary art that is sculptural, contrasting and complimenting work on the walls, and providing interesting glimpses out from the ground floor windows.
S|2 has now gone one stage further by adding literature to its last two exhibitions, with a third in the offing.
Short stories by Brazilian novelist Clarice Lispector (1920-1977) are paired to the work of 11 different artists including fellow Brazilian Tonico Lemos Auad who now lies in London and Olga de Amaral from Columbia in ‘Where were You at Night’, the second in S|2′s trilogy of exhibitions linking art to literature.
Other artists from all around the world include Kim Lim, Carole Seboravski, Jagoda Buic, Shelagh Wakely, Francoise Grossen, Shiro Tsujimura, Leonard Drew and George Baldwin.
I am now enjoying reading Clarice Lispector’s short stories, an author which I might never have investigated had it not been for this exhibition.
Well done, S|2!!
