Massive Nerve Corpus

18 May 2019

Massive Nerve Corpus continues Mikhael Subotzky’s look inwards at his relationship to white masculinity. The exhibition builds on his fictional film installation WYE (2016) in which the white male psyche is the terrain of anthropological curiosity.
 
"What I’m trying to do in my work right now is to pull apart the normalization of whiteness, to make it look strange, to re-racialize it and to represent it as the ridiculous construction that it is.
[…]
It is confessional. But it’s not just me who’s doing the confessing. When the circus clown makes a fool of himself, he’s really just soothing the foolish part of all of us who are watching."
 
- Mikhael Subotzky, from an interview with Hansolo Umberto Oberist, Johannesburg, 2019.
