We Are In Hell When We Hurt Each Other (2020) // Shrines (2020)

Jacolby Satterwhite’s hybrid universes are stunning collisions of digital and analogue techniques. His extravagant environments mix up 3D animation, found imagery, electronic music and voice recordings of the artist’s deceased mother. Infinitely replicating avatars dance in a dreamlike virtual reality, alongside video footage of vogueing nightclubbers, bondage and lifestyle images.

Jacolby Satterwhite (b. 1986 USA, based in New York, USA) is an interdisciplinary artist whose work addresses themes of labour, consumption, carnality and fantasy through immersive installation, performance, and digital media. He uses a range of software to produce intricately detailed animations and live action film of real and imagined worlds populated by the avatars of artists and friends. Satterwhite draws from an extensive set of references, from queer theory and modernism to video game language, to challenge conventions of Western art through a personal and political lens.
