Jacolby Satterwhite in The Gwangju Biennale

The 13th Gwangju Biennale

May 9, 2021

Minds Rising, Spirits Tuning sets out to examine the spectrum of the extended mind through artistic and theoretical means. Directed by Defne Ayas and Natasha Ginwala, the 13th Gwangju Biennale (1 April–9 May, 2021) will feature a dynamic program encompassing an exhibition, a performance program, an online publishing platform and publications, and a series of public forums bringing together artists, theoretical scientists, and systems thinkers. The Biennale argues for the primacy of plurality, positing that points of origin and influence ought to be accessed not only through the dominant technological systems and machinic vocabularies traceable to the West but also relate to heterodox ancestries.

Pioneer Works

November 24, 2019

For the close of Jacolby Satterwhite’s exhibition You’re at home, the artist is joined in conversation with curator Thomas Lax to expound and reflect upon his digital animations, virtual worlds, and the 3D-printed sculptures that serve as their physical counterparts. The discussion will focus on the effect of Satterwhite’s digital work as well as the themes of the exhibition: American consumerism, pop culture, African folklore, ritual, and personal narratives, all of which are illustrated in Satterwhite’s visually eclectic animated series Birds of Paradise. This exhibition centerpiece and its thematic concerns speak in concert with the other work included in the exhibition.

Pioneer Works

November 22, 2019

As part of Jacolby Satterwhite’s exhibition You’re at home, PAT—comprised of the artist and musician Nick Weiss (of Teengirl Fantasy)—will perform songs from the duo’s newly released double LP album, titled Love Will Find A Way Home. Within the album, a capella recordings of original songs left behind by Satterwhite’s mother Patricia are remixed and manipulated into propulsive, electronic dance tracks that feature a range of other collaborators. Utilizing the album soundscape as the auditory point of inspiration, the performance will synthesize live choral renditions and thematic light transitions into a holistic live-scoring of Satterwhite’s animated works, including the multipart series Blessed Avenue. Guests from the album will also make special appearances throughout the evening.

A collaboration between artist Jacolby Satterwhite and musician Nick Weiss—one-half of Teengirl Fantasy—PAT takes its name from Satterwhite’s mother Patricia, who suffered from schizophrenia and died in 2016. She left behind hundreds of a capella recordings on cassette tapes as well as abstract drawings of home goods, such as wet wipes, sugar cubes, and toothbrushes. Incorporating her recordings into their work, Satterwhite and Weiss remixed and manipulated Patricia’s voice into propulsive, electronic dance tracks featuring a range of other collaborators.
