Usually when you walk into a show, the first and last thing you remember is the door. I feel like a lot of my earlier work, some people thought it was some parallel to street art. I thought, fuck it, let’s just address it and get it out in the air. In conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist
Enter Paul Sepuya whose art stands like a lighthouse blinking in this storm. Sepuya’s use of his own body in his photographs is both an act of transparency as well as an assertion that his humanity is behind the work, not an algorithm, app or third party.

There’s something of the Gothic in this impulse to “make explicit,” too. Gothic architecture made aesthetic the surfacing of its inner-scaffolding. Several of Jacoby’s projects likewise surface, through inversions of function or structure, otherwise invisible systems.
Sculptures become actions with titles like Positioner, Objectifier, Muter, and Penetrator.
The body never belongs entirely to ourselves but is instead the interface in which subject and collectivity meet and the scenario in which the relationship between the two elements is negotiated.
Tsang’s strategies of expanding the fourth wall confront the viewer with the gaze the camera casts on protagonists, but also with their own involvement in cinematic situations and the roles these usually prescribe.

"I am always enchanted by things which encompass two opposite concepts." Guan Xiao
There is a powerful mood of ambivalence that quivers in and around the work of Scottish artist Rachel Maclean. It can be seen in her cast of cutesy characters with pastel-colored skin and hair and wide-eyed stares, who with saccharine smiles sing in major keys of HAPPINESS and RAINBOWS to a shifting triumvirate of ghoulish TV talent show hosts.
