Presentation :

Selon Linkedin, Derek Sullivan est d'abord président d'Atlantic DataSystems, il a une quarantaine d'années et habite Terre-Neuve-et-Labrador au Canada. Il a le regard franc et un sourire plein d'assurance dans son costume sombre avec lequel il aime porter une chemise blanche car une éducation stricte l'a toujours orienté à préférer une certaine forme de classicisme. Mais Derek Sullivan est aussi « Production Artist » à Methodologie dans la région de Seattle dans l'état de Washington au nord ouest des USA. En semaine comme le week-end, il n'aime pas porter de costumes et leur préfère des polos de couleur sobre. Il arbore une barbe pour viriliser un visage poupon et attirer le regard sur le bas de son visage plutôt que sur sa calvitie. Cependant, Derek Sullivan est aussi un « independent Fine Art Professional » de la région de Toronto qui travailla un temps comme coordinateur à Underline Studio, une agence de graphisme pluridisciplinaire. Une personne qui considère que pour exister, une oeuvre d'art ne peut se contenter d'être simplement produite. Qu'elle doit se multiplier sous forme de représentations diffusées au travers de magazines, rassemblées dans des livres, atomisées sur Internet. Que l'existence d'une oeuvre est donc tributaire de sa médiatisation. Et que par conséquent, son travail, depuis qu'il a quitté Underline Studio, consiste à traiter cette existence médiatique non comme une forme atténuée de l'oeuvre originale mais comme une occurrence supplémentaire de celle-ci.

According to Linkedin, Derek Sullivan is chairman of Atlantic DataSystems; he is about 40 years old and lives in Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada. In his dark suit that he likes to wear with a white shirt, because of a strict upbringing that convinced him to favor a certain form of conservatism, his gaze is sincere and his smile, self-confident. Derek Sullivan is also a Production Artist at Methodologie in Seattle, Washington State, in the Northwest of the United States. Whether weekdays or weekends, he prefers polo shirts in sober colors rather than suits. He grew a manly beard, which toughens his otherwise childish expressions and attracts attention to the lower part of his face rather than on his baldness. And Derek Sullivan is also an independent Fine Art Professional from the Toronto area, who has worked as a coordinator for Underline Studio, a multidisciplinary graphic design agency. A person who considers that in order to exist, a work of art cannot rely solely on the fact of being produced. It must clone itself through representations published in magazines, collected in books, fragmented on Internet. The very existence of a work of art depends on its promotion. Thus, since he has left Underline Studio, his work focuses on the media existence of artwork, not as a toned down form of the original, but as an additional occurrence of it.
