Jean-Ulrick Désert

a Haitian visual and conceptual artist
Jean-Ulrick Désert

Jean-Ulrick Désert was born in Port-au-Prince. He grew up in Haiti, later moving to New York, Paris and Berlin. His art references many locations and artistic cultures, and it rises from the traditions of conceptualism studying social practices. He explains his works as visualisations of the conspicuous invisible. He tackles topics of cultural references, ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality and other variables which challenge monolithic concepts of identity.
