Jordan Essoe, Myth of Sisyphus (2009), Video still


Essoe will present a two-part installation in Swarm's project space and side gallery about the indifference of the universe and its facility as a container. In the side gallery, the video The Myth of Sisyphus shows the artist continuously vacuuming up and down a hillside. This room also includes two close-up photographs of the floor and ceiling of Essoe's home studio/family room/dining room. In the project space, a series of drawings depict the artist laying on, straddling, and playing around a closed chest. A rectangular sculpture set in front of these pictures suggests the unseen contents of the chest, but also perhaps Sisyphus's rock, or the contents of the world being sucked up and collected in the performance video.
