Jordan Wolfson
Born in New York, lives in LA. Artist Jordan Wolfson (b.1980) is known for his provocative work in a range of mediums, including sculpture, installation, video, photography, digital animation, and performance.

Disturbing and vindictive, Wolfson’s puppet boy is violently smashed to the floor which begs the question is this real abuse?, it then threatens to fight back. But is the controversial US artist just yanking our chain?

His ‘Female Figure’ is a robotic sculpture that gives monologues and dances to pop songs. It’s unnerving and startling, it raises the question of misogyny and it exposes the cracks in pop culture.

His work is not only controversial, instantly impactful, but is also quite disturbing and it certainly drives a message home – all qualities in art that I love!
