Nike Savvas’ work often consists of large-scale installations that ‘translate’ painting into three dimensions and popular culture into high art. Blurring the boundaries between disciplines, genres and materials, her unique iconography produces an experiential zone of physical and sensory immersion. Savvas states “It is important as an art maker to dissolve the boundaries that create and reinforce convention. I work from the inside to break down and erode the boundaries that create distinction, to create a unique animal of sorts, one that is free of the shackles of the arbiters of power. It’s all about liberty and a new world. It’s a kind of personal and public revolution.” By dissolving distinctions between known and unknown, Savvas produces unique installations that draw on the power of colour and the perceptual response of the viewer.
Savvas’ work involves a rich spectrum of colour, systems, and optical play to highlight multi-variances across different domains. Colour lends a visceral immediacy that predates and transcends language. Everyone is affected by colour—immediately, and profoundly. In this respect, it is the viewer’s participation and activation that completes the work. The experience remains open, subjective, democratic, and immersive. The sensory and perceptual response agitates the senses, blurring boundaries between the known and the imagined, between the physical and the ephemeral.
Savvas has been the recipient of multiple awards, including ACT Creative Arts Fellowship and the Australia Council Fellowship. Savvas completed various large-scale installations for the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, and the V&A Museum, London. In 2018, Savvas’ work features in the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, Divided Worlds, and the Art Gallery of NSW’s collection show Spacemakers and roomshakers.
