Jakup Auce

Introduction

Born 1979 in USA. Works and lives in Brussels.

Jakup Auce is profoundly intrigued by the portraying of the visage and the narratives of character-making, generating series of personages that wander inside a retro sci-fi, from glam to cryogenisation, around a theatre of living mechanical puppets. An army of beautiful monsters are the fable of the artist and his surroundings: the embryonic sexuality of nature as the social construct of identity - ?Pas pour ceux qui ont pris les cockrings pour des ronds des serviettes?. Auce has exhibited in In Extenso (FR), Komplot (BE), Inside 15 (BE), Island (BE) and IMT Gallery (UK); he is represented by Nosbaum Reding and Trampoline.
