“Combining the origins of cinema with contemporary technology, Jordan Wolfson traces the whole history of the moving image, with a #Godard-ian ambition.”—@magazine_transfuge In ‘ARTISTS FRIENDS RACISTS’, Wolfson utilizes a new HYPERVSN 3D holographic technology made of spinning fans that have micro LEDs embedded in their blades. The LEDs are programmed to rapidly illuminate in a precise manner while spinning to create the illusion of holographic imagery floating in space. Come see the exhibition now on view at #DavidZwirner in Paris and @sadiecoleshq in London. Link in bio to learn more. #jordanwolfson #davidzwirnerparis @jordanmatthewwolfson
The highlight of the exhibition is certainly the installation which shows various visuals created by the artist. The 3D holographic displays are powered by spinning fans that have micro LEDs embedded in their blades, able to project animated characters like imprisoned cats, faces of famous artists such as Yayoi Kusama, and text that read “Artists,” “Friends,” and “Racists.”
The other part of the exhibition is wall-mounted brass panels affixed with photographs from Wolfson’s childhood. ARTISTS FRIENDS RACISTS is on display until March 21 at the David Zwirner Rue Vieille du Temple, Paris.
