PLAY



Presented January 15 - March 20,
2021 at Halsey McKay, East Hampton


(New York)- Kendra Jayne Patrick is pleased to open the 2021 season with an exhibition by Texas-native conceptual artist David-Jeremiah. PLAY showcases paintings belonging to a body of work called Hamborghini Rally: Soul Hunt City in which the artist uses the framework of his favorite sim racing video games to explore the anatomy of revenge.

The origin story anchoring the universe that is Soul Hunt City is a revenge killing that American news outlets called “The Deadliest Incident for Law Enforcement Since 9/11.” In July 2016, former Army carpenter Micah Xavier Johnson shot twelve and killed five Dallas police officers in response to the country’s unwillingness to prosecute police who murder black civilians. Although Johnson escaped the initial scene, he was later found barricaded in a building on a nearby college campus where police killed him by sending a bomb-diffusing robot with a remote control bomb to explode his hiding place. This was the first time in US history that law enforcement used a bomb-diffusing robot to kill someone.
The Hamborghini Rally begins, then, when Johnson’s (white; ‘91 Andrós) vengeance wills officers Zamarripa (red;‘83 Bikees), Ahrens (orange; ‘68 Semipro), Krol (yellow; ‘76 Correcto; (not yet with us at Soul Hunt City)), Smith (black; ‘60 Rangeri), and Thompson (blue; ‘72 Dartón) into racing one another to get their souls back from his possession.

The Lamborghini motif showing up in multiple bodies of Jeremiah’s work, here frames each character’s origin story. It is another intricate utilization of the names and colors of those models that the Italian automakers named after fighting bulls known to have either killed matadors in the ring or won enough coursings to earn their freedom. The paintings embody the accord of will, guts, and fear that Johnson’s brutal retaliation shares with the terror that the police f/k/a slave catcher a/k/a overseer class visits upon black people. Jeremiah estimates that the longer the officers spend in the potent exchange that is competing for Johnson’s approval, the more they’d bear many different kinds of resemblances to him. And Johnson, who spends his time in this universe mercilessly, indefinitely holding the officers hostage has himself been morphed by the residue of colonialist thinking. After all, what do we make of the fact that symbiosis is among revenge’s most important externalities?
