heike moras art is pleased to present Get over it! Move on! a solo exhibition by French artist Marie Jacotey. Continuing Jacotey’s long-standing interest in relationships seen through the prism of comics, the exhibition is comprised of a series of new works on dust sheets and plaster tiles as well as an assembly of drawings.

About

Marie Jacotey’s explorations into young adult relationships share a formal and conceptual affinity with comic book art and offer a critique in how we view, perceive and store images in the post-internet age.

Jacotey’s drawings of the contradictory complications of life invite fictive extrapolations on a culture informed by soundbites, existential angst, and the inane dictum of the internet. Often leavened with a palpable erotic undercurrent, Jacotey’s subjects hover between an innate sense of possibility vs. unexpected despair and offer a profound interplay between individual psychosis and social entropy. Jacotey deftly navigates the vernacular where trivial maxims are often charged with intensely personal symbolism as well as broader cultural inflections.

Whist her drawings have a clear narrative pull, Jacotey’s tiles are picture puzzles that invite the viewer to determine the outcome of her stories in an increasingly volatile world. They serve as a formal exploration between the part and the whole and focus on the complex interplay between authenticity and artificiality in self-presentation and relationships.
