Jordan Sullivan "A Room Forever"
This event has ended.
Utrecht/Now IDeA presents A Room Forever, the first solo exhibition in Tokyo by New York based artist, Jordan Sullivan. A Room Forever is a collection of photographs, collages, and ephemera recounting the first months of a relationship between the artist and his girlfriend, Jill. The photographs capture an emotional panorama, documenting the early stages of their relationship in intimate detail (Sullivan began photographing their life together the night they first met). Sullivan’s photographs reveal more than just a relationship between two people in love. For Sullivan, a photograph is salvaged time, a memory, equal parts fact and fiction, evidence and construction, fantasy and reality. Sullivan’s pictures explore photography’s dual nature: the ability of an image to recall and preserve a moment just easily as it can manipulate and reinterpret it, revealing a heightened, almost dream-like reality.
In addition to the exhibition, Sullivan will be releasing a new book and a series of zines.
