Barry Iverson - The Tour

Artist Statement

“In my current series, the concept of the Grand Tour is revisited. In a twist of historical revisionism and ambivalent truths, this series represents my tour, and I have constructed a fictional documentary of Egyptians and cosmopolitan Levantine residents on visits to places throughout the Mediterranean and Near East. At its core are works of architectural studies that result in a projection of subjective memories on actual places. At times, I have brought personal family members into play. I am interested in the interplay between the past and present and the seamless transition between them. As one examines the scenes of original and found imagery, certain expectations are upended, and the definition of what is old is no longer what it seems - or should be.” – March 2014
