Kyle A Kruse (b. 1993) is an American artist living and working in London, combining spoken word, sculptural installation and moving image, to pull together personal and geopolitical narratives, hovering between discursive pasts and anarchistic futures. Using himself as material to become an array of locations, objects, and characters, he composes rhythms of disorientation and collapse. Pastoral image and childhood innocence slide seamlessly into trauma and nightmare seductions. Reality and fiction disarticulate themselves in Kruse’s stories, tearing through memory, history, and perception, exposing the latticework, the interconnectivity of action and affect, the skeletons in our closet.
