âBeneath the Pavementâ¦the Beach!' Sexton (London) & Dominique Lacloche (Paris)
Witness three yellow sun disks with giant leaves, a Spanish conquistador - his skull caved in by a native. The mask of Socrates created from a 4.5 billion year old meteorite that in turn gazes at the Moon as it waxes and wanes. Salome as a silver Luna leaf floating beside a golden reliquary that within contains the levitating head of John the Baptist and to greet you: Malcolm McDowell whipping Christ from Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange.
Sexton considers all his work produced in whatever medium as poetry or writing, or an extension thereof describing work produced as a âsculptural poem' or âphysical literature.' He collapses complete & complex narratives into poems, that he then actualizes, by mixing other mediums, both conceptual and philosophical, which in turn - ignites memory, truth & imagination in the viewer.
Paris based Dominique Lacloche produces what may seem on the surface traditional landscapes, but they are framed within elements of other landscapes - which bear no relation to each other, climatically or geographically. Are these leaves painted, or are they photographs of paintings or paintings of photographs? Is this the landscape as it should be - fashioned from, and of, and then into - the very elements that create it?
