Disruptive Elements is the latest work by Sydney-based reductive artist Marlene Sarroff. It comprises of two main pieces, the first being a frame covered entirely with elastic that has been wound and stretched around its surface, and the second consists of a cluster of black boards, sourced from various materials, and adorned on the surface in a variety of ways.
Of her work, Minus Space says:
Marlene Sarroff’s work is concerned with materials and process. She uses very ordinary industrial materials and then sets about a process to manipulate them enough so as new work evolves, whilst at the same time, being true to the material.
This work is presented resting against a wall, as opposed to being hung or displayed otherwise. This reflects an interest in the physicality of the work.
