During the summer, Jon Tarry's photos can be viewed in the 24/7 exhibition space of SEA Foundation. The images are registrations of a number of locations that the Australian artist has encountered during his artist residency in the Netherlands. The series captures the stillness of a moment.


The exhibition unpacks ideas of time and place, and of being here and now. The series, made during his residency, began as a way of drawing connection through acts of happenstance. A sheet of paper is one of potential: fresh, crisp, unblemished parchment, assumes a form after being compressed by hand as carbon marks the surface. Discarded paper sheets are found everywhere on the streets, it may be a note to self, a  route description, shopping list, poem, notes from a music score, parking ticket, love letter, a set of or completely blank. The flight path of the paper is undetermined, its released into the air to somewhere in the unknown. This series speculates on these random moments and discards. The folds of the paper shift contextually to a new urban interplay. 

Jon Tarry makes art as a way to test ideas about the prosaic, political and poetic, in the form of sculpture, drawing, film and sound. His work explores art and architecture, in which the work functions as a comparative study of spatial knowledge. The creative process provides a new insight into the medium and the subject he investigates. For Jon Tarry, the process of generation of art is just as important as the work.
