An Island in the Moon
February 28 to March 26, 2015
Ampersand is pleased present an exhibition of over 200 photographs and collages by artist and writer Jordan Sullivan to coincide with the publication of An Island in the Moon by Ampersand Editions. "Form is emptiness and emptiness is form," writes Peter Matthiessen in The Snow Leopard, a classic account of a journey through the Himalayas in search of something that ultimately proves elusive. Citing these words as a point of inspiration, Sullivan has created a collection of photographs and collages that reads as much like a series of short narrative sequences as it does a book of photography. The photographs, printed in muted tones, evoke emotional states of longing and wonder, yet the relationships between one woman to another and the settings in which they reside remain undeclared. The collages, too, made up of fragmented landscapes and torn book pages, resemble something forming or coming into being. Sequenced and designed by the artist, the book itself emulates Sullivan's large photographic installations of An Island in the Moon through which the collective message of the work changes with each hanging, or, in the case of book, with how one chooses to engage its pages.
