Lovett / Codagnone: Walk in Silence / Galerie September, Berlin

Until 15th March 2008 Galerie September in Berlin presents works by New York-based artists John Lovett (born 1962) and Alessandro Codagnone (born 1967). Like the solo show “Interruption of a Course of Action”, which was presented at the P.S. 1 in New York, their exhibition project at September gallery, “Walk in Silence“, reflects the current political situation in the United States. In their video works, performances, and photo projects, Lovett and Codagnone “combine elements of homosexual SM subculture with literary, cinematic, and discursive quotations circling around the latently violent dynamic of lust, domination, subjugation, and resistance.” (excerpt from the press release). Lovett and Codagnone have worked together since 1995. Their exhibitions and performances have been shown at numerous international institutions and galleries, including ICA Boston, Museum Ludwig, De Appel Centre For Contemporary Art, and Performa 05. Impressions from the opening reception, February 1, 2008.
