Artist Statement

In 2010, energy consumption in China rose to 5.9% equalling 3.25 billion tons of coal making it the highest consumer of coal in the world. Ninety per cent of the nation’s energy system relies on coal, which is largely blamed for the majority of greenhouse gas emissions, responsible for high Co2 emissions, particulate matter, hydrocarbons, mercury and arsenic. The “burning” quantity alone is slightly higher than the six major consumer countries that follow it put together, in the order of the USA, India, Germany, Russia, Japan and South Africa. In winter the Hong Kong cityscape disappears into the engulfing smog, an aesthetic common to all Chinese megalopolises, that Jodice has masterfully captured in this shot.

Artist Profile

Born: 1967

Hometown: Naples

Based in: Italy

Francesco Jodice’s art explores the transforming social landscape of our time, with a particular focus on urban anthropological phenomena and the creation of new participatory processes. His projects are aimed at building a common ground between art and geopolitics, presenting artistic practice as a form of civil poetics. He is on the faculty of the MA programs in Visual Arts and Curatorial Studies and Photography and Visual Design at!NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan, and of Scuola Holden in Turin. He was among the founders of the Multiplicity and Zapruder groups. He has been in major group exhibitions such as Documenta, the Venice Biennale, the São Paulo Biennial, the ICP Triennial in New York, and has shown his work at the Castello di Rivoli in Turin, Tate Modern in London and the Prado in Madrid. His main projects include What We Want, a photographic atlas; The Secret Traces, an archive of urban experiments in shadowing; and Citytellers, a film trilogy about new forms of urbanization. His most recent works—Atlante, American Recordings and Sunset Boulevard—explore the future of the Western World.
