Clic Gallery presents, ROADSONGS, a solo exhibition by New York-based artist Jordan Sullivan. ROADSONGS brings together a collection of Sullivan’s recent photographs and prose. Central to the exhibit are eight landscapes shot on the road between New Mexico, Texas, and California. Interpsed between these landscapes are smaller portraits and interior scenes, featuring Sullivan’s family, friends, and lovers. The installation unfolds like a road map, connecting the places and people Sullivan has known.
Sullivan’s images, coupled with selections of his prose, continue Sullivan’s exploration of transience and it’s effect on his own perceptions of memory, freedom, and home. Further investigation also reveals a concern for a photographs subjective nature and it’s potential for truth and falsehoods. How can a photograph revive and alter a memory? How can a photograph manipulate or aid a personal history?
Jordan Sullivan was born in Houston, Texas and raised in Ohio, Michigan, and Indonesia. He studied at the University of Michigan and University College London before moving to New York City. He previously worked as a construction worker in central Texas, a touring musician in New York City, and as an artist assistant to photographers Mike & Doug Starn. He has exhibited in the United States, Europe, and Japan and published numerous volumes of his work. He lives in New York City.
A special limited edition of Sullivan’s book, The Ghost Country, made in collaboration with jewelry designer Pamela Love and published by Clic Gallery, will be available.
