Jordan Derrien - Bushels of Goodness and Warmth
Jordan Derrien - Developed during his residency at V.O Curations, Jordan Derrien presents a new body of work, which continues his experimentation with material, form and texture.
Derrien’s starting point for the project was the 1957 novel La Jalousie (Jealousy) by French writer and filmmaker Alain Robbe-Grillet. The narrator, who never reveals himself, observes the interactions of his wife – only referred to as A… – and their neighbour Franck, suspecting a love affair between them. Throughout the novel, the narrator continuously replays his observations and suspicions, to the point that it becomes impossible to distinguish between his reality and fantasy.
