LEAKAGES, PUDDLES, DISCHARGE, INFECTIONS AND BUBBLES…
Speculating on the fraught intersection between biology and identity, Jes Fan’s trans-disciplinary practice emerges from a sustained inquiry into the concept of otherness. Primarily working in the field of expanded sculpture, Fan navigates the slippery complexities of identity as guided by the tactile and material histories of his chosen media between contemporary visual art and fashion.
In Fan’s work, he incorporates materials imbued with erotic and queer signifiers, such as silicone, soap and glass, as well as biological substances such as estrogen, testosterone and melanin.
