LOOSE LEAF is a three-fold experience. Two parts of the show are made up of written and assembled work by Seattle writer, editor, and creative director Laura Sullivan Cassidy; the third part is a group exhibit curated and organized by Love City Love's Jessica Carter and Sullivan Cassidy.
1. The pages of Sullivan Cassidy’s short fiction collection THESE THINGS NEVER HAPPENED were shown unbound and hung on the wall in the manner of two-page pre-production publication spreads.
2. A collection of gathered, distorted, and obliquely annotated images were shown—also in the manner of two-page pre-production publication spreads—as wind-blown LOOSE LEAF detritus on the gallery floor.
3. Curated recent or in-progress work, with commentary (or story), by a variety of Seattle practitioners such as Dylan Nuewirth, Eleanor Petry, Joey Veltkamp, Jesse Brown, Erin Frost, Victoria Haven, Erin Sullivan and more make up a component called WHAT IS NOW. This work was photographed and hung in the manner of two-page poster sized pre-production.
Inside the gallery, LOOSE LEAF’s displayed pages evoked three chapters of an anthology; the experience of the show will replace the experience of binding and distribution; the visitor’s interaction with his/her chosen pages will be substitute for reading.
