JAKOB BOESKOV : POST DOMINATION
Post Domination Painting 10, 36 x 36, oil on wood, 2017
ADA gallery presents Post Domination, a solo exhibition of new works by Manhattan based artist Jakob S. Boeskov. Post Domination consists of a series of paintings in which the artist explores the hyper realities of cyberspace and Silicon Valley companies. Boeskov's painting style references scientific diagrams and informative graphics which allows him to make quick, humorous and dark multinational connections, as he seeks to expose the corrosive effects of the likes of Twitter and Facebook, the often traumatic invasion of personal space and loss of a tangible reality. Post Domination investigates this new human condition created by software companies and the transition of software as a simple practical tool to an agent of a social sleep.
Jakob S. Boeskov (b. 1973, in Elsinore, Denmark) is an artist based in New York. Boeskov has had several solo shows at ADA gallery & Mulherin + Pollard in NYC. Group shows include Reality & Fiction (Villa Schöningen, Berlin) Populism (Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam) and Screening War (ZKM, Karlsruhe). Boeskov has worked with Creative Time in New York and is the co-founder of The Scandinavian Institute, an artist run space in Chinatown, New York. Boeskov's film 'Empire North' won the Danish Dox Award at Cph-Dox in 2011.
exhibition dates : Feb 3 - 25, 2017 GALLERY HOURS: Wed. - Fri. 12-5pm and Sat. 12-4.
