Thousand Tears investigates the study of visual re-presentation and its ability to create distance between idea (memory) and object (self). Spivak isolates, breaks and reconstitutes the materials inherent to photography allowing the medium an opportunity to look back on itself. This exhibition serves as a reminder of the physical and chemical processes of photography, granting the viewer space to consider the value of image in our visually saturated culture.
Noah Spivak studied at the Cooper Union School of Art, New York and received a Bachelor of Fine Art in photography from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Vancouver in 2015. Shortly after graduation he migrated to Melbourne and has been actively producing since in his Brunswick based studio. Spivak has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
