“Few imitators can match Ethridge’s witty mix of art and commerce, document and fiction.” – Vince Aletti, Artforum
“[Ethridge’s] practice befits an era marked by the increasing reach of imaging technology and the porousness of the art world … an artistic practice whose gravity stems precisely from not taking things too seriously.” – BOMB
From March 11 to April 11 2021, Roe Ethridge was in Paris, working on two commissions separated by a two-and-a-half-week gap. The limbo between these spells of work mirrored the strange lacuna in which the city found itself. Paris was drained of tourists and under curfew; its parks and canal walls were crowded with locals, while shops and bars lay shuttered. Ethridge walked the erratically populated city thinking, among other things, about NFTs and Eugène Atget, and produced this distinctive visual journal of an in-between moment.
