Splashed Memory of a night Out, 2010 - 2018
A series of 20 digital images transformed into Black and White photographs developed in a dark room.
Made for the occasion of a solo show in New York City in 2018 titled (I want you to know that i am hiding something from you), the images are of a night the artist doesn’t remember from his first trip to the city. After further research, he realized that they were captured at Splash, an iconic New York city gay club that opened in September 1991 and closed in 2013, a casualty of the gentrification of Chelsea and the rise of dating apps. Resonating technically with Do You Have Work Tomorrow, the prints float in a timeless place, memorializing the loss of a collective stage.
