Cleon Peterson declares "Victory" @ agnès b, Paris
"This show explores the hedonistic triumphs of those who recognize themselves as victorious in the unfolding mirror of history. Their right to pleasure hinges on their projection of pain onto the unvictorious other. This often expresses itself in pleasure derived from the misfortune of the defeated. As the winners display their hubris and take their trophies the losers are left insigni cant and marginalized. VICTORY explores one mans victory over another, what that victory looks like and the result that victory has on the losers." —Cleon Peterson
The show is up until February 18, 2017.
