> DESCRIPTION

Ego Loser is part of a series of animated talking-head videos that utilize the language of self-help and positive affirmation, email spam, and other detrital language to express the boundaries between physical reality and psychic understanding. Humor and exaggerated forms expand into absurd narratives, confronting mortality and failure, as the talking-head professes esoteric advice and affirmations despite his unstable, amorphous physical condition.

Johannes DeYoung received his MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2006. His work has been exhibited at Pallas Projects, Dublin, Ireland; in Brooklyn at The Parlour, Vaudeville Park and NutureArt; Grizzly Grizzly, Philadelphia; Real Art Ways, Hartford and Hell Gallery, Melbourne, Australia. He currently has work on view at Interstate Projects in Brooklyn, part of a collaborative exhibition with Natalie Westbrook. He lives and works in New Haven, Connecticut.
