Artist Talk and Signing: Nicholas Muellner

15:00

Nicholas Muellner's work operates at the intersection of photography and writing. Nominated for this year's Photobook Of The Year Prize at Paris Photo, this event focuses on his most recent image-text book In Most Tides an Island, a journey of exile and solitude in the digital age, published by SPBH Editions.

In Most Tides an Island evolved as a visually choreographed slide lecture integrating over 130 images related to but distinct from the book. Here Muellner presents his original performance lecture that questions what intimacy and solitude mean in a radically alienated but hyper-connected world.

Seductive, disorienting, informative and allegorical, In Most Tides an Island is at once a glimpse of contemporary post-Soviet queer life, a meditation on solitude and desire in the digital age, and an inquiry into the nature of photography and poetry in a world characterized by cruelty, longing, resignation and hope.

Nicholas Muellner is a photographer and writer based in West Danby, New York and Los Angeles, USA. Through books, exhibitions and slide lectures, his projects investigate the limits of photography as a documentary pursuit and as an interface to literary, political and personal narratives. His image-text books include The Amnesia Pavilions (2011) and The Photograph Commands Indifference (2009). He is Co-Founder of ITI Press and the Image Text MFA at Ithaca College.
