Jacolby Satterwhite at Asakusa

Jacolby Satterwhite uses thousands of drawings left behind by his schizophrenic mother, Satterwhite to stitch together the virtual and the real: his mother’s inventions and his politicised body merge through 3D animation. Coloured Bondage: Jacolby Satterwhite & Danshoku at Asakusa in Tokyo, Japanshowcases his most recent video projection and a panoramic picture scroll of the 14th century danshoku (homosexuality). The endless love-seeking in a relationship of obedience becomes a euphemism for nostalgia in his utopian pornography, and directs us to psychological anxiety for excess desire. Within his undulating imagination between the personal and the political, we voyage through vital moments of his queer life.
