Jonathan Lyndon Chase - Now I’m home, lips that know my name.
For their first solo show in the UK - Jonathan Lyndon Chase presents Now I'm home, lips that know my name, an explorative, domestic installation that embraces the Black Queer experience of love, sexuality, subjectivity and identity; and the profound depth of the capacity for intimacy and pleasure in both public and private spaces, that remain central to their practice.
Jonathan Lyndon Chase is an American multidisciplinary artist, whose expressionistic language spans a variety of media, ranging painting, sculpture, video, installation, poetry and sound.
Centred around a red brick house structure, Chase's installation reenvisages the gallery space as a sanctuary for the unapologetic expression of the self and communal, non-binary ways of being. Encompassing a new group of paintings, drawings, soft sculptures, installation and a video, their works mediate a kaleidoscope of Black bodies, in which flesh, skin, limbs, orifices and their surroundings overlap and condense into sensual amalgamations.
