Ivan Forde
Visual Arts Residency

Spanning three photographic series –Transformation, De i section, and Fight! – Forde’s work depicts imaginative and unusual ways of seeing the body in contemplation, at play, and in combat. Performing for the camera, the artist interacts with objects before its viewfinder, moving back and forth to a timed shutter release. Forde’s photographs draw on the common experience of the body as a tool to explore the body’s function as form, language, and symbol.
