Gerard & Kelly, "Archival Print (Susan Sontag)"

300.00

Gerard & Kelly’s Archival Print (Susan Sontag) depicts a fragment of text from Susan Sontag’s archive. The photograph shows the margin of a book from which Sontag was learning French. In the margins, Sontag had annotated the phrase “vous avez de la chance – you are lucky.” The photograph evokes the instant in which Sontag penned the note, the moment where a certain idea and meaning began to form in Sontag’s mind. The formation of text, and the production of a poetic interaction, is central to both the photograph and the artists’ NYPAC project the Frank O’Hara Memorial Library.

Gerard & Kelly (Brennan Gerard and Ryan Kelly) have collaborated since 2003. Working within an interdisciplinary framework to create project-based installations and performances, Gerard & Kelly use choreography, writing and a range of other media to address questions of sexuality, collective memory, and the formation of queer consciousness. This spring, The Kitchen presented their most recent exhibition, Timelining, praised by The New York Times as “the high point of the Chelsea season.” In 2014 their work has been supported by fellowships from the Graham Foundation and Art Matters and a residency at Pioneer Work Center for Art & Innovation. Gerard & Kelly are currently in residence at the New Museum as part of the R&D Season: CHOREOGRAPHY.
