Lost performances by the melancholy British cult band Joy Division hover over "if we were immortal,"the haunting sixth exhibition at Team by Slater Bradley, a specialist in false reincarnation and uncanny coincidence. The band’s lead singer Ian Curtis, who committed suicide in 1980 at the age of 23, has long been a prime inspiration for Bradley’s constant themes of youth, death and incipient abandonment, themes that he has also addressed via aspiring actresses, Star Wars devotees, children’s church choirs, butterfly catchers, astronauts and Michael Jackson (among others).
