Jason Fulford: The Mushroom Collector

Edited by Lorenzo de Rita.

Featured image is reproduced from Jason Fulford's <I>The Mushroom Collector</I>.As photographer Jason Fulford recently learned firsthand, mushrooms have a way of growing and spreading wherever they touch ground. It all started when a friend of Fulford’s gave him a box, found at a flea market, full of photos of mushrooms--unassuming pictures taken by an unknown but almost certainly amateur photographer, apparently as notes for some mycological studies. Fulford’s art photographs--aside from his well-known book Dancing Pictures, which depicted people getting down to their favorite songs--are usually of staid, quasi-mute objects: a smashed Dorito chip overrun with ants, two bronzed doorknobs spooning, the blank back of a street sign. Yet these mushroom images got stuck in Fulford’s mind, like a bad song sometimes does, and they started to grow in his own work. The Mushroom Collector combines some of the original flea-market mushroom pictures with his own images and text by the artist about the project.

Through the Rabbit Hole: Jason Fulford's Mushroom Collector at Dexter Sinister

Jason Fulford's Mushroom Collector at Dexter Sinister

On Saturday, March 26, the Dexter Sinister "Sometime Bookshop and Ofttime Maker of Projects" space, run by Stuart Bailey and David Reinfurt, was turned into a darkroom-for-a-day in support of a project by Jason Fulford—one of several art workshops in Fulford's itinerant Mushroom Collector series. After climbing down the steep steps to the basement of 38 Ludlow, visitors entered a tiny room packed with people anxiously awaiting original artworks—handmade photograms of random objects chosen by the vistors. The entire experience felt like an excised scene from Alice in Wonderland.
Visitors were confined to a compact room walled off from the gallery and perforated by two small openings. One was a Malevich-like red square window, tilted on an angle, where visitors could catch an occasional glimpse of the back of someone's head passing by or a pair of eyes peering out to survey the crowd. Below the red window and to the right was a smaller black opening, inset with a shelf for placing even smaller objects for collection. Every so often, an anonymous hand would pop through the black opening to remove the objects that had accumulated, replacing them with finished photograms of the set of objects that had been left before. The photograms were packaged in small envelopes accompanied by stamped and numbered cards like the one below. continue to blog
