Reception and Book Launch

NEW YORK, NY—
Superposition Gallery is proud to present Exotic: a solo show of photography by Sinjun Strom curated by Storm Ascher. This is Strom’s first solo exhibition, and third exhibition with the
gallery. The selection of photographs displayed are in congruence with our first publication Exotic — an extensive catalogue of Strom’s self portraiture while taking a year hiatus from her hectic New York career as a set designer, videographer, and photographer. Her exploration documented her travels; positioning herself within landscapes such as a meditative trip to small town Kansas City, Missouri, Alaska, Wales, and the Everglades of Florida.
“The most valuable experience I had during this trip was meeting my extended family for the first time in Mexico. Even though there was a language barrier, they started to understand what my intentions were and actually began to collaborate with me by bringing out things for me to use, like blankets my great grandmother had crocheted. Creating images in Mexico really was a full family affair!”
The staged portraiture is indicative of her set design background, her hand is visible in every aspect from the clothes, props, and placement of objects. Most indicative of this is the shutter release in her hand that can be seen throughout foreground of each image. Her style of dress and object placement is paramount to the success of documenting the myriad of experiences into one final image.
Superposition Gallery is happy to be collaborating with Wallplay Network On Canal for this iteration of borrowed space.
(b. 1995, Gardner, MA) is a visual artist whose analog photographs preserve her constructed worlds and characters. She received her BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts and is currently based out of Brooklyn, NY.
Growing up as a young Latina woman, she always looked at fashion images and felt that she could not relate to the body types and products that were being presented to her. Hot Mamma Series aims to create an experience where women from different age groups and backgrounds can “feel themselves” while they are being photographed.
