Installation view: Suzanne McClelland, Michael St. John, Monsieur Zohore presented by de boer, Los Angeles
de boer presents three artists responding to the unique circumstances of Governors Island’s history as it relates to time, its changing political identity, and the character of its domestic rooms. The work of Suzzane McClelland responds to the island’s endurance, reflecting her examination of the fragility of representation. Micheal St. John’s paintings aggregate a crumbling American democracy and those surviving on the slimmest of margins. Monsieur Zohore employs humor and domestic labor in works that arise from consumer-driven capitalism and his Ivory Coast parentage.
