Jordan Wolfson is engaged in various artistic practices such as video and animation, but also sculpture, performance and photography. For him, the moving image plays a key role in postmodernity, changing our perception of objects, and more generally speaking, of life. He embodies a young generation that finds its identity through digital images and advertising. His work deals with death, sexuality and even love.
In Raspberry Poser (2012) the artist embodies different identities: the deconstructive rich kid, the melancholic punk. A condom filled with hearts floats through the air, as does the AIDS virus. These images are paradoxical: the disease becomes gracious, the animations are violent, and the child loses his naivety. This paradox is highlighted by the music, which is both soothing, funny and disturbing. The sound level of Sweet Dreams by Beyonce is raised extremely loud to then be replaced with awkward silences that forcibly induce reflection. The artist raises many questions: what is the role of the artist? And when does reality become artificial?
