In this exhibition, kendallprojects, the name under which Jason Kendall presents his art, incorporates drawing, painting, sculpture and performance. The exhibition addresses American Football culture by exploring themes of identity construction, masculinity, violence in sports and conditional self-worth based on physical performance. The artist is not only a spectator but also a critical analyst, distancing himself from the self-destructive nature exhibited by many athletes.
kendallprojects explores the artist’s personal experience. From 1994-1998, he played football at the University of South Carolina and North Greenville College. He quit to escape the negative physical and psychological aspects of the sport and to pursue a career as an artist.
