Front Room: Nathaniel Mellors & Jimmy Joe Roche
This exhibition presents irreverent, edgy, and absurdist videos by two artists exploring human behavior when social norms are stripped away. Mellors’ Ourhouse series of videos features a cast of misfit characters enacting the decline of an eccentric British family, while his new work The Saprophage examines the literal and metaphoric waste produced by contemporary society. Roche uses a combination of performance, sound, and video to channel an array of American outcasts, ranging from fervent figures of violence to complacent burn outs. The exhibition will also include an intricate, psychedelic cut paper sculpture by Roche and photographic work by both artists.
