Morán Morán is pleased to announce a solo presentation by Jacolby Satterwhite for Art Basel 49. For Statements, Satterwhite creates an immersive installation – a room wallpapered in a prismatic, hypnotic, digital vision. The room incorporates a variety of elements, such as 3-D printed sculptures and ephemera housed in a custom entertainment unit, a VR piece, and video animation. His video animations fuse with music. The soundtrack is based on a capella melodies sung and recorded on cassette by his mother in the 90s that Satterwhite integrated with elements of electronic house, noise, and deconstructed club music, to create a full length album called Patricia.

Jacolby Satterwhite was born in 1986, Columbia, SC, and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He received a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art (2008), and a MFA from the University of Pennsylvania (2012). In 2013, he was a recipient of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant, and he received the United States Artists Award in 2016. His work has been included in exhibitions at several prestigious institutions, including the Bronx Museum, New York, NY; Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; New Museum, New York, NY; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA; Serralves Museum, Porto, Portugal; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN. Satterwhite’s work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Finland; Museum of Modern Art, NY; San Jose Museum of Art, CA; Seattle Art Museum, WA; Studio Museum in Harlem, NY; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY.
