Jonathan Lyndon Chase
In Wind Rider, Jonathan Lyndon Chase creates an immersive installation of sound, sculptures and paint- ings centered around the hyper masculine world of cowboys. Often touted as white and heterosexual, the cowboy is a conduit of terror and consumption; it’s very existence compounds erasure of black body, space, and culture. By layering this parable with the artist’s experience of coming out in the year 1999, Chase renounces the colonization of black queer bodies and confronts the complexity of an American motif.
