You Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)

Artist Statement

The art of Jonathan Alibone can be read as an interrogation of western culture's beliefs and values, offering as it does an exploration of the uncertainty and irreconcilable antagonisms inherent in our existence. His work is populated with ghosts, and haunted by loss, unconsummated desire, and a nameless longing. By appropriating images and text from film, books, magazines and pornography, he is able to co-opt their cultural and symbolic associations so that they become ambivalent signifiers of moral emptiness, skepticism, and self-disgust. The viewer is no longer a passive consumer but a voyeur and participant, implicated in a nihilistic culture’s obsessions, perversions, and hunger for meaning.
