Bushels of Goodness and Warmth is a publication that accompanies Jordan Derrien’s solo exhibition at V.O Curations (11 November – 17 December 2022). Inspired by Alain Robbe-Grillet’s 1957 novel La Jalousie, and the Nouveau Roman movement in general, the show features new bodies of work that continue the artist’s experimentation with material, form and texture.
Illustrated with installation images of the exhibition, the publication includes a newly commissioned text by French art historian and curator Marie de Brugerolle. The author explores Derrien’s paintings as furniture, as material and as architectural elements, weaving together references to works by Robert Rauschenberg, Marcel Duchamp and Jasper Johns, among others.
