If the last years of crypto hype and NFT talk have illustrated anything, it is the class crossing desire to feel like a player. A quest to be a wolf on your street. The work of Christophe de Rohan Chabot speaks to ambiguities orbiting this, reaching out past the visual into primal societal existence, ruminating on the now and the universal, blurring the line between symbols and words. Money, sex, joy define our existence, whose erotics inform life in fantasy and action. Supposedly unspoken in polite society and spoken about too much anyway. The execution here relates as much to trash aesthetics as it does to the holy temples of 20th century sculpture. Cryptobro pixels fuck John McCracken, Minecraft and Judd, Memes and Sol Lewitt. Tricks and temptations exist when the weighty is presented as if it were twee and here the quotidian holds the deeper: materials and problems, images, art, popular culture and history. de Rohan Chabot grabs and collages references freely, but isn’t interested in art about art or fanboy creations (at least not singularly); social illuminators exist within. His works are sexy, maybe fun(ny), and totally sinister. A fetish for the finish is a form of shallowness that defies the depth of the most basic of words.

Jordan/Martin Hell (1993, USA) is an artist, writer, & scholar living between Berlin & London. He has studied at Cooper Union, Städelschule, & is a PhD candidate at Queen Mary University of London in English & Drama. His latest book, ‘CONSTANT VIOLINS’ is forthcoming from Arcadia Missa in 2022.

Each of the three paintings; Ice Cream, P.E.R.R.S., & I’m From The Government are extensions of Jordan/Martin Hell’s newest 2-part speculative historical novel JELLYBEAN & THE MOTHERFUCKERS. These works each explore the emotional archive of images both historical & contemporary in relation to the subconscious. Engaging painting as a medium rooted in material fascinations akin to fetish & how those relationships move in connection to power, desire, & violence, Hell works at the interplay between information(s) & their various phantasmatic applications as relics, props, & projections in the theatre of the mind.

Sally von Rosen's artistic practice is defined by the (im)material. Her performances, objects and sculptures seem to come from another time or from another world, navigating between raw and slick, between desirable and dangerous. They seem to remind us of things we know, but yet they can't really be classified in our perception. Are they things or objects that refer to living beings? Are they alive? Why are we even asking these questions? 

Text excerpt by Sylvia Sadzinski

The sculptures by Sally von Rosen are made to be performed with; animated through the movement of the human body. Von Rosen is more interested in how objects can exert force upon humans and their social interactions than focussing on the human experience per se—inspired by Jane Bennet’s Vibrant Matter. A Political Ecology of Things (2010), for her, there is no real distinction between subjects and objects. Rather there is a web of materials - an animated matter that competes, forms alliances that initiates new processes. The performative sculptures come to a standstill, allowing the viewer to take a closer look at their composition. The artist falls back upon natural forms for the sculpture’s shapes, which she then transforms into consumerist products. Though the colors used are soft and powdery, the sculptures come with claws, horns, thorns, and fangs, making them as desirable and dangerous at once.
