Forewarning (Act 4): Demarcation—Jacobus Capone

23 Mar 2024 – 28 Jul 2024

The recently acquired dual-channel video work Demarcation (2022) is the fourth act in Jacobus Capone’s ongoing performative project Forewarning. Instigated in 2018, the project is staged within specific environments that have become inherently fragile through time and human intervention.

(Act 4): Demarcation unfolds directly at the base of, and sometimes beneath, an unstable glacial face in Norway named Haugabreen. Capone’s movement across the base of the glacier demarcates a line between the monumental natural feature and humankind’s presence, the root cause of the glacier’s rapid decline. Capone draws on art historical traditions of the sublime to highlight contemporary and urgent environmental concerns.
