Jon Vogt Engeland: Root Out
May 7th, 2021 - May 23rd, 2021
The exhibition Root out presents new works by Jon Vogt Engeland. His artistic practice is diverse and includes sculpture, installation, textile, drawing, and video. At BABEL he will show a line of works concerned with the love triangle of the subjective body, its intimate territory, and its external forces. The triangle is a poetic definition of the state of the contemporary subject as the artist sees it: a set of relationships of passion at the brink of collapse. This poetic polyamorous relationship is immediate to the fabric of contemporary embodiment. Drawing parallels to religious iconography, local folklore, traditional crafts, manual labour, and forces of nature, he delineates an area of focus relevant to the loving, working, living and present body.
