Meet Meghan Sullivan
AIR 2018 Meghan Sullivan’ show “Framing Device” presented work that reflected the many layers of history of the eternal city. In addition to terracotta female busts, a series of tiles recorded the images of the past that she encountered during her residency.
“What are the stories we tell over generations? What is remembered? What is lost? How do we frame the narrative of our personal and cultural histories? In Rome, time has a strong presence and the evidence of previous ages is obvious. Living with the layers of past civilizations has been a new experience for me. It has raised questions as to what we choose to preserve, what we decide to value and how that influences the future generations. This exhibition is my first response to these considerations.”
