Jacolby Satterwhite combines video, 3-D animation and drawing in his immersive installations and performances. In Reifying Desire: Model It, on view in Fore, Satterwhite appropriates and traces his mother Patricia Satterwhite’s drawings—inspired by household objects and consumer goods—into his videos’ digital landscape. Satterwhite makes connections between his artistic practice and his mother’s, in the process constructing psychological and cultural matriarchal lineages. Juxtaposing live performance and recorded documentation, Satterwhite also investigates the relationship between between reality and the virtual world. Throughout the November 29th performance, Jacolby Satterwhite will activate his new work Reifying Desire: Model It (2012), performing a movement piece in the Museum’s main galleries animating his two-channel video installation.
