A Moveable Feast – Part II

03 Oct, 2013-19 Oct, 2013

Campoli Presti, Paris

A Moveable Feast – Part II
Sean Paul
3 – 19 October 2013
Campoli Presti, Paris

The second installment of A Movable Feast is dedicated to the work of New York based artist Sean Paul.

A still life assembled from domestic products (cup, bowl, saucer, and plate) is marked with black squares of tape; the black squares function as tokens, which allow the spatial geometry of the still life to be discerned. Following standard practices of technical representation, used for example in the fields of architecture or product design, the still life is pictured from six perpendicular planes forming a box of views composed of the front, back, left, right, top and bottom angles. This box is unfolded and then refolded forming four composites of one, two, four, and six views into a single plane. This plane then becomes the array, which informs the material images’ unfolding into lived space, or a domestic scene.

The traditional nature morte, including memento mori tableau, relies upon the animate, positive concept of nature or life to negatively define itself (life moves, death is static). In opposition to this positive concept of life, these works take their definition and logic from the prolonged movement of death found in commercial advertising, and the systematic combinatory configurations presented to the consumer. What is posited is not that there is still life, but that there is an animate death, a much more lucrative field, in the loss of the object and the investment in its absence.

A detail of a towel’s surface structure is incorporated into another planar structure that includes color, resolution, and gradation guides. Sharpness, broken into two fundamental factors: resolution and acutance, is one category of technical qualification used to discern a digital image’s quality. Resolution has become an ubiquitous concern for anyone operating in the fields of image reproduction. One could argue that Resolution has established itself as a primary category because it is capable of buttressing a kind of social promise of spatial engagement. In other words, if the technologically advanced sectors of the world appear to have passed beyond a state of one-dimensionality, it may be due to the fact that the technological veil has simply gained in resolution (i.e. detail).

Sean Paul (b. 1978 in Salt Lake City, Utah) lives and works in New York. He received a MFA from Columbia University, NY. Recent solo exhibitions include Every Hair of the Bear, Front Desk Apparatus, New York, Sprachbarrierenstrasse, COMA, Berlin, Symposium, Sutton Lane, London. Recent group exhibitions include Avant de Rentrer, Il Faut Incéndier la Maison, Thomas Duncan Gallery, Los Angeles, Blueprints, Hessel Museum of Art, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY, Snout to Tail, JTT Gallery, New York, Standard Operating Procedures, Blum&Poe, Los Angeles, Collatéral, Le Confort Moderne, Centre pour l’Art Contemporain, Poitiers.

You The With US

22 Nov, 2005-06 Jan, 2005

Sean Paul
You The With US
22 November – 6 January, 2005

Sutton Lane is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition in London of American artist Sean Paul, You The With US. Working for this show primarily – but not exclusively – with painting, Paul explores the notion of triumph.

One can speak of triumph most obviously, but through the claps of thunder one may whisper the notion of triumph’s failure. One may glimpse it in the night through the glowing heat of raining white phosphorus. Triumph becomes simply a limit, or more truly a territory – a concept made manifest through force. Inoculated by a struggle, what becomes triumphant is the presentation of victory.

The limits created to take refuge within turn against the refugee and imitate it, leaving the refuge to reveal itself as the justification. We are left with a practice “that resists, or aims to resist, serving as the means of reproduction of particular competencies or dispositions.” The exhibition becomes the site of struggles in which what is at stake is the power to impose a definition.

Sean Paul received an MFA from Columbia University, New York this year and is currently included in the internationally touring e-flux video rental.
