Asha Sheshadri – “The Last Picture Show”
TX: Monday, 14th Feb, 6pm – 6.20pm + Tuesday, 15th Feb, 12pm – 12.20pm
The Last Picture Show is a survey of self-conscious object details lodged within the Metropolitan Museum of Art, with no expectation that they would ever be heard. The work is interspersed with dialogue from “The Last Picture Show” (1971). It was set up as an open-ended exploration, in which I documented art objects that were to be addressed, through writing and field recordings which were then cast aside. To me, this piece feels like revisiting an outdated atlas.
Asha Sheshadri (b. 1986) moves freely between video, writing, sound, and photography. Her forms flow together to create unpredictable observations of the overlooked, while documenting personal and political networks within our collective, imperfect memory. She currently lives and works in New York.
