Tiona Nekkia McClodden
THE POETICS OF BEAUTY WILL INEVITABLY RESORT TO THE MOST BASE PLEADINGS AND OTHER WILES IN ORDER TO SECURE ITS RELEASE
For her very first institutional solo exhibition in Europe, Tiona Nekkia McClodden (*1981) weaves together a body of all new work to continue her ongoing exploration of the intersections of control, threat, desire, and pleasure. Imagining the whole of her exhibition as a kind of theoretical choke valve, the US-American artist showcases sculpture based on readymade elements used in the cattle industry, paintings on leather, video, and performance that provoke a distinct sensorial encounter as much as an intellectual and emotional one.
