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. 

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.

"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." 

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

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.
