Jeffu Warmouth’s solo exhibition Urgent Blowout explores transformative self-portraiture through inflatable photographic sculpture. The central work is a ten-foot wide inflatable head, hollowed out and filled with dozens of smaller fabric heads, sewn from 3D photographic scans of the artist. This new inflatable work continues his pursuit of his brand of comic, surreal conceptualism, incorporating himself as subject matter. Urgent Blowout amplifies our desire to fill, inflate, and replicate ourselves; we float around aimlessly bumping in one another, changing course based on wind currents, Black Friday sales, foreign influence, and cat GIFs; we may not know where we’re going, but we remain desperate to get there quickly.
