For Jordan Wolfson's second solo exhibition at Johann König, Berlin he will debut his new video titled CON LECHE (with milk). The title refers to the main subject of the artwork: animated cartoon Diet Coke bottles filled up with milk. These characters walk through the desolate urban streets in real video sometimes in groups and sometimes alone. The image wobbles flips, and turns inside of the video frame.
A commercial voice-over actress speaks from texts Wolfson collected from the internet referencing identity, technology, memory, and mortality most of which are personal accounts spoken in the first person. Every few minutes Jordan Wolfson interrupts her giving basic instructions and adjustments distorting her tone and volume.
By mixing and combining opposites, playing with analogies and ambiguity Wolfson creates a distorted mix of reality, imagination, and cultural critique. He investigates the relationship between technology and media merged with his own personal experience balancing between pop and conceptual art.
