Roe Ethridge, Sacrifice Your Body

From the press release:

“In this his latest body of work, Ethridge conflates a rich array of photographic tropes, combining
personal documentary images made in western Palm Beach County, Florida (his mother’s childhood home), with surreal collage works, images from a discarded Chanel magazine story, various cross connected still-life images of a Bonne Maman jam jar, a Nike football, a phone receiver from the 80’s and a diptych of a very dead flounder. These are interwoven with what appears to be a carefully directed scene depicting a teeth-white Durango SUV sinking into and then being retrieved from a canal. The clash of visual styles, histories and meaning establish a flat line of dissonanceunderscored by the touchline admonition of the neon title – SACRIFICE YOUR BODY.”
