Agatha Gothe-Snape's 2012 wall painting, Emotional Wall with Everything Else, recently acquired by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia is currently on display as part of Primavera at 25: MCA Collection. Gothe-Snape's wall painting was originally commissioned by Shepparton Art Museum as part of their ongoing Drawing Wall series. Emotional Wall with Everything Else is based on the Lüscher colour test, a psychological test invented by a Swiss psychotherapist, Dr Max Lüscher in the early 1970s. The Lüscher test claims to objectively measure a person's psychological state through their responses to specific colours. A traditionally-trained signwriter is employed to write the cursive script on the final panel. The artist sees this last panel as a contemplative space, with the hand-painted white text offering difference and respite.

The Biennale of Sydney and City of Sydney today announced that the 2016 Biennale Legacy Artwork Project will be created by Gothe-Snape, the second time this 25 year jointly-commissioned public art work has been awarded.

I am delighted her work will connect with the residents of Sydney and reveal their stories. The success of events like the Biennale shows there is enthusiastic public support for contemporary art in Sydney – people want to be inspired, challenged and delighted by art, and Agatha’s project will, I’m sure, succeed on all fronts.

Agatha Gothe-Snape is developing a major new work for Performa 15 in New York in November this year. Performa is the pre-eminent biennial of international performance art. On 18/11/15 at the New York Society for Ethical Culture, Gothe-Snape will present Rhetorical Chorus (LW), a performance inspired by a chance encounter with legendary conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner that explores the role of the physical body in transmitting and receiving knowledge. Her most ambitious and formal performance work to date, Rhetorical Chorus (LW) pieces together a gestural lexicon of Weiner’s hand movements, and an expanded verbal vocabulary gathered from his every text work. Rhetorical Chorus (LW) is a visual and aural collage of images, texts and sounds. It presents an improvised choral performance in the byzantine tradition of cheironomia, a musical system notated by hand gestures, accompanied by an animated digital PowerPoint presentation, each illuminating the dual lexicons of Lawrence Weiner. Unraveling the interconnected legacies and influences of modernism and conceptual art in their respective practices, Gothe-Snape follows these threads through acts of embodiment, expression and transference in this layered and multi-sensory circulation and consumption of knowledge. Gothe-Snape's work for Performa has been jointly commissioned by Performance Space, Sydney and the Keir Foundation with the support of the Australia Council for the Arts as well as private donors. Rhetorical Chorus (LW) has been selected as one of fourteen focus Performa Commissions. Other Performa Commissions for 2015 are by Ryan Gander, Jesper Just and Oscar Murillo.

Agatha Gothe-Snape is exhibiting in the 8th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art curated by Juan A. Gaitán. It is her first major exhibition outside Australia. Gothe-Snape has developed a text-based procedural work, Untitled (2014), for the splash page of the Berlin Biennale website: www.berlinbiennale.de. Eighty word combinations are encountered one at a time, appearing randomly. The sources of the words are mostly found texts – spoken and written. In the months leading up to the Biennale, she has been emailing the word combinations to the curator who forwards them to the London-based designers, Zak Group. In the hands of Zak Group, Gothe-Snape’s phrases are absorbed into the corporate identity of the 8th Berlin Biennale and placed between parentheses (formed by the bisected glyph of the number 8 of this Biennale’s vintage), in a space left intentionally blank. The designers juxtapose these word combinations with thumbnail images that depict cityscapes, demolition, people looking at art etc. Gothe-Snape is not involved in the choice of imagery or its placement relative to her words. Her role is not dissimilar to a copywriter though the texts are far from copywriting. During the Biennale, her word combinations will migrate and find themselves inserted on posters, banners and other ephemera surrounding the exhibition. Gothe-Snape has produced a brochure that documents the work, with commissioned essays by Emily Cormack, Georgina Criddle, Juan A. Gaitán and Erik Jensen. 8th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art: 29/05/14 - 03/08/14. www.berlinbiennale.de. Go there and refresh your screen.
