Comunicato stampa

A visionary interpreter of the troubled human mind, of the streams of consciousness and the anxieties of the present, Jon Rafman (b. 1982) explores the all-encompassing impact of the virtual within the representation of our time. Through an immense vocabulary drawing from internet culture, virtual world, video games and insinous areas of the web, Rafman creates surreal and absolute landscapes in which he nourishes a constant sense of loss and alienation, of instinct and memory, of resurrection and death, of extreme sacrifice and rebirth. In a world oppressed by obsession, paranoia, a sense of emptiness and loss, the artist leads us into the most concealed realms of the web, among the viscous drives that replace reality and at the same time embody it.

The exhibition is curated by CURA.
The exhibition architecture is designed by BB.
Jon Rafman’s first monographic book published by CURA. and designed by Dan Solbach will be launched in Spring 2024.

A lecture performance by the artist will be held at Soho House Roma on the 27th of February (members and on invitation only).
