Dense Lightness by Ivan Forde (@workdaily), a show curated by Anna Harsanyi, is still on view at @baxterstccny for a couple of days through January 5. ⠀
Ivan Forde’s image Morning Raid was selected by Libby Pratt (@libpratt), artist, educator, and director at Baxter St at CCNY, for our feature “photograph is 30”. ⠀
She wrote about the image: “Although Ivan Forde’s blueprint, Morning Raid, takes the ancient epic poem Gilgamesh as a starting point, the work feels solidly contemporary. What initially seems like a battle between man and nature shifts upon closer examination. Numerous delicate, ephemeral characters attempt to wrangle and take control of a monumental tree in some graceful choreographed dance.”⠀

I confront the overlapping ideas of American identity, authenticity, and photography’s critical role in framing and constructing our understanding of reality.
I’m inspired by a more expansive portraiture of bodies marked with time, experience, story, loss, power, beauty and substance all rolled into one.
I investigate the fluidity of identity (or as Marx would put it: Gattungswesen) in relation to society.
I use photography to abstract objects and landscapes of historical significance in an attempt to change the way those objects and landscapes are perceived.
