Alongside his darkroom curiosities, Spivak retains heavy interest in site responsive installation and curatorial practices. Spivak’s current processes isolate, break and reconstitute the materials that compose photographs – presenting audiences with the distance that can exist between a physical object and a study of visual re-presentation. The artist aims to provide a space that challenges viewer and artist alike into considering the value of (self)image in our visually saturated culture. Spivak’s fascination with the human senses, the ambiguity of the everyday and the space in which the art experience occurs culminate in a body of work that explores how we experience visual art and the subconscious decisions we make leading up to this moment.
Noah Spivak is a graduate of Emily Carr University of Art and Design, holding a BFA in photography. As his recent interests reflect, this medium is now applied to an installation-based and spacial practice. The artist’s compulsive urge to collect – objects, relationships, meaning – is used to explore the ways in which we experience the small phenomena of the reality we inhabit. Shortly after graduation he migrated to Melbourne and has been actively producing since in his Brunswick based studio. Spivak has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
