A few months ago, LA-based artist Cleon Peterson examined the act of revenge with his show "POISON." Now, ahead of his latest solo exhibition "The Judgement," hosted at the PLUS ONE Gallery in Belgium, Peterson joins forces with Case Studyo to give us a sneak peek.
Continuing with themes of violence and chaos that have been prevalent in Peterson's past works, this latest collaborative project portrays two life-sized statues in the midst of a power struggle. The piece shows one man lying down with his head cut off, while the victor holds the decapitated head in his hand.
“I think that the world and people’s motives are exceedingly complex and what seems heroic and just on one side is often the opposite on the other,” says Peterson. Set to both intrigue and disgust, the powerful statute plays on the fascination of how we often view certain topics in the media spotlight.
If you're in Antwerp, be sure to check out "The Judgement" exhibition co-curated with Case Studyo, which opens its doors on February 4.
