New York-based artist Jeong’s show consists a sculptural installation in the form of a ‘suspended maze’ made from moulds of captured tears and sugar called Lash Blast x 2% Flourish. Its press announcement comes accompanied by an abstract, poetic text skirting a theme of affect in objects: “knockoff ysl cries, detained by customs, begging for clearance.”
London-based Chavasse is showing a single-channel projection called The doldroms, a video constructed from phone footage and situated in a region of the Atlantic Ocean called ‘the Doldrums’ known for its unpredictable weather, as well as a word that refers to a state of malaise and stagnation.
