About The Work

Comprising large scale painting, works on paper and object-based installation, Mandy El-Sayegh’s 2019 at Chisenhale Gallery brings together principle elements from an ongoing inquiry into themes relating to representation, abstraction and subjectivity. El-Sayegh’s paintings, works on paper and object-based installations move between linguistic, material and corporeal registers, often creating double meanings that signal a breakdown in everyday systems and orders.

To accompany the exhibition El-Sayegh produced a special limited-edition series Editorial Works (2019). The work comprises four scanned collages that are individually marked with El-Sayegh’s unique painterly gestures. Each collage mobilises imagery sourced from El-Sayegh’s personal archive, including luxury advertisements, tabloid newspapers, photographs of previous works, microscope slides, candy wrappers, board game fragments and travel documents. The subsequent imagery is reproduced digitally on canvas and overlaid with painted imprints of El-Sayegh’s own body, alongside the application of stains, painting and drawing. In this new series, El-Sayegh explores a method she describes as a ‘recombinant’, inviting associations between her painterly interventions and the enigmatic fragments of the digital collages. Editorial Works continues El-Sayegh’s formal experiments of re-constructing and exploding meaning through modes of reproduction and modification into new composite forms.
