Jordan Wolfson
Animation, masks, 2011
digital animation with sound

The films and videos of Jordan Wolfson (b. New York 1980, lives and works in New York and Berlin) combine the strategies of conceptual art with personal and often deeply emotional content. Working in live-action, animation, digital video, and film, Wolfson has produced a body of psychologically complex works in which images and language undergo dream-like repetitions and rehearsals. Wolfson?s tightly constructed dramas suggest not only our shared cultural anxieties but also our innermost private fears
