Jamie Fitzpatrick

Exeter Phoenix was pleased to present Big Dick, a solo exhibition of new work by the London-based artist Jamie Fitzpatrick.

The exhibition was loosely inspired by Moby Dick, Herman Melville’s classic novel of obsession and revenge on the high seas, and brought together a raft of characters set adrift on the high seas.

Represented by three monstrous, over-sized heads, each narrated their own part of a disembodied narrative in which Fitzpatrick explored the psychology of hysteria and the struggle for power in an environment of shortened resources and tightening borders. In the confines of the raft, his castaways were forced to recreate and institute a social community of conformity and hierarchy while (off-stage) a vast, pink, patriarchal whale/deity constantly threatened to eat them as they themselves contemplated a desperate descent into cannibalism.
