There Is (18%) Grey Between The Lines
Born and raised in Vancouver, Spivak’s works offer no personal autobiography. His current processes isolate, break and reconstitute the materials that compose photographs, producing versions of the photographic that present audiences with the distance that can exist between a physical object and a study of visual re-presentation.
For this exhibition, Spivak has created a photographic installation that reveals no actual image. Rather than presenting pictures to look at, There Is (18%) Grey Between The Lines, uses tropes inherent to photography to break that of a normalised, and accepted, method of representation. The seemingly disparate works – though both remnants of past artistic processes – cultivate as a single, ocular experience left to be studied and interpreted, like that of a photograph.
