Description

In a signed and numbered edition of this moving photograph, Sullivan re-presents an image he found in a newspaper once, that of legendary golfer Arnold Palmer’s tearful announcement of his retirement. Upon first seeing this image, he was struck by how similar it seemed to Bas Jan Ader’s film ‘I’m too sad to tell you’, in which the artist weeps before the camera. Compelled by how his knowledge of the prior work informed his moment of “mistaken identity” Sullivan placed the image in a new context, attempting to isolate that moment for others.
