Sirens of Chrome, Jesper Just, 2010
RED transferred to Blu-ray.
Currently on view at James Cohan gallery in NYC until October 27th, 2012.
Sirens of Chrome is a single channel video presentation to be installed in the gallery’s front space. As curator Jennifer Frias writes, “Known for his short cinematic videos, Just’s works are often emotionally charged with ambiguous narratives that never reach a moment of conclusion. Gender, relationships and identity are recurring themes in his work. His previous works have explored the relationships between men while challenging prototypical masculine personae as typically represented in motion pictures and popular culture. Sirens of Chrome, similarly takes on the complexity of the human condition, but shifts its focus on the representation and interpretation of African-American women and women in general.”
