Popop Artists Prepare For Upcoming DAF Exhibition
Two Popopstudios-based artists – Jeffrey Meris and Tessa Whitehead – will be exhibiting new works in an upcoming exhibition at The D’Aguilar Foundation, entitled: ‘This is Yours, That is Mine’.
Both artists examine fragments of the landscape as a record of the ruins of history and a demonstration of desire, power and surrender. Meris exhibits drawings and sculptures that examine the literal and physical street as a binding space for black culture and a stage for trauma. Whitehead’s paintings of unkept landscapes are an inquiry into failure and surrender.
