—“Montage” — by Asha Sheshadri

Pressure Club in collaboration with Remote Viewing is pleased to present a new print edition and accompanying solo exhibition by artist and writer, Asha Sheshadri.

Join us for an Opening Reception Friday Sept 10th from 6-9PM  

Sheshadri’s new print will be presented in her new exhibition “Montage,” which opens Friday September 10th at Pressure Club, 711 W Thompson St, Philadelphia, PA. This project has been in collaboration with Remote Viewing and is a continuation of their projects in presenting contemporary sound and multimedia work. 

Jackson Heights, Queens, is the backdrop for “Montage”; an exercise in decontextualization, reconstruction, and reiteration. The salon-style assemblage is an exploded version of a personal photo archive, obscuring and refocusing on daily life on 72nd & Roosevelt Streets. The “poor images” are subjects of intervention over the past three years, reflecting changes on behalf of their author. 

“The more honestly you put yourself into the story, the more that story will concern others as well.” 

—Rainer Werner Fassbinder

Entitled “Labor,” this print is a product of collaboration between myself and Pressure Club. Over several conversations, we discussed the political and formal concerns of each photo, ultimately honing in one image and its utility of layers and textures. The work is a “re-imaging” of overlapping narratives within the lifecycle of a photograph. 

Labor, 12 x 18” Collaged Silkscreen and Archival digital print with chine colle, edition of 14  $125 

Artist and writer Asha Sheshadri (b. 1986) moves freely between text, video, sound, and photography. These forms flow together to create unpredictable observations of the overlooked, and documents of personal and political networks within our collective and imperfect memory. She currently lives and works in New York.
