Jude Broghan


Note on the works: The Surrealists suggested that we use a map of one city to find our way around another, but really we can do nothing else. We locate ourselves with close and constant reference to memory and imagination, interpreting our surroundings according to their subjective examples. A recurrent subject of Jude Broughan’s work is that process of understanding one place, one time, one state of being through allusion to myriad alternatives. The ten works shown here include photos taken by the artist in London, New York, Los Angeles, and Miami and around New Zealand, and depict the liminal spaces of international travel, suggesting both the free-floating anxiety of dislocation and the excitement of unknown futures.
