The Renaissance Society presents Forlesen, an exhibition by William Pope.L, on view April 28 through June 23, 2013. In his work, Pope.L investigates how difference is demarcated economically, socially, culturally and politically, most prominently in the opposition between blackness and whiteness. With this project, the artist furthers his exploration through multiple media, including drawings, sculpture and a video installation.
Titled after a short story by the celebrated science fiction writer Gene Wolfe, Forlesen features a ten-foot-high wooden sculpture titled Du Bois Machine, roughly 50 new “skin set” drawings, and a video work of abstract imagery that is derived from bargain-bin VHS tapes—set within an elaborate architectural configuration of the artist’s design.
