In a process that is unguarded, and karaoke-like, Jennifer Sullivan’s multi-disciplinary practice combines appropriated popular and art historical sources with her own voice, body, personal possessions, and experiences. In works spanning video, installation, performance, and painting, she employs a collaged aesthetic, and an improvisatory attitude, performing crude makeovers on her source materials, and re-embodying them as her own.
Sullivan has mounted solo exhibitions at Freight + Volume, and Las Cienegas Projects, as well as group exhibitions and performances at MoMA, PS1, The Kitchen, Sculpture Center, Horton Gallery, Arthouse, and Klaus von Nichtsaggend. She has completed residencies at Fine Arts Work Center, Skowhegan, Ox-Bow, and Yaddo. Her work has been reviewed in the NY Times, Artforum.com, and Art Papers, and her videos are included in the Geisel Library collection at the University of California in San Diego. Sullivan received an MFA from Parsons. Born in Albany, NY, she currently lives and works in Ridgewood, NY.
