SupaKitch surprises the public with a brand new series entitled Flooded – The Tennis Courts presented at Kolly Gallery from 15th to 20th March 2021.
In 1990 SupaKitch sprayed his first graffiti on the wall of the tennis club near Montpellier. This is an essential personal memory that connects his own story to his most recent series. Furthermore, tennis is among the artist’s preferred sports, which he also first practised in his youth. The artist even has a fondness for the vintage design and elegant aestethic of the sport with its designated outfits, tools and obviously the tennis courts and their precise white lines.
The presence of water on the tennis courts distorts the vision and creates movement on a usually static scheme. The straight white lines painted on the ground delimit and partition. They represent the uncompromising rules of the sport. The water, by its transparency and its matter in movement, curls the lines and so softens their rigidity in a random way to grant them a moment of outbreak and madness.
