ONE MORE STRIKE, 2018
One More Strike is a photographic piece from the Conspiracy of Silence story by the artist Jean Malek.
Conspiracy of Silence is an exploration of the transactional nature of relationships, and of the spaces in which they occur. The works call to mind a landscape of strip clubs, seedy motels, restaurant kitchens, and parking lots – sites where the body is often reduced to a commodity of exchange and exploitation are pervasive. However, Malek eschews such a reductive reading, blurring the line between victim and perpetrator, and illuminating the multiple roles we can play simultaneously.
(B. 1983) Jean Malek is an award-winning director and photographer. His work is influenced by box office and indie movies, fashion and fine art photography, often blurring the boundaries between fields and genres. Rooted in storytelling, Malek’s approach is driven by irreverence, subversiveness, and eclectic cultural references. His evocative images often push the limits of good taste to create arresting images that comment on social, political, and economic issues. Malek often pulls from the world of cinema, imagining compelling characters that hint at a larger narrative in a single shot. His work is always quintessentially contemporary and larger-than-life.
