FRIEZE LONDON. READING ROOM
4.30 pm - Jon Rafman in conversation
with Maitreyi Maheshwari

On the occasion of the launch of CURA. issue 23, featuring a cover by Jon Rafman and a main essay on his work, the artist and curator Maitreyi Maheshwari, Programme Director at Zabludowicz Collection, will talk about the video and its online first presentation.

Erysichthon (2015), by Jon Rafman, is the final element in a trilogy of videos including Still Life (Betamale) (2013) and Mainsqueeze (2014). Like the other videos of the series, it comprises found images from the web, user-created contents and video clips. These examples of subcultures are investigated through the theme of devouring and ingesting, used as a metaphor for our culture of consumption and our relationship to the virtual world.
