Danish artist Peter Land has mainly exhibited video works over the past seven years, but he has often accompanied them with drawings and photographic works. Land's work concerns itself with self-exposure: of the body, the person, the artist, and ultimately, society itself. His images demonstrate the tragicomic failures of human attempts to competently, casually, and convincingly in socially determined role--and they address the absurdity, the shattering ridiculousness, the Pagliaccian melancholy that is brought on by the failure of these attempts. The human failures that Land confronts here are shocking, moving, and honest--but they also force the viewer to stand face to face with her condition, to see it, perhaps for the first time, in its naked truth. Peter Land documents some of the highlights of Land's oeuvre over the past several years, providing a provocative look at his urgent and probing artwork.
