The Journal Gallery is proud to present DR. GO HOME (BABYTARANTULA IS BACK IN GODZILLA-GYM, thanks … 1923-2023), a collection of work by German artist Jonathan Meese, who previously contributed the cover image, a performance piece on DVD and 28 pages of works on paper for the journal entry 22.

The exhibition consists of four series of works: Mouth Wash, cheap photocopies brushed with mouthwash instead of paint; Eigelb, collages of yellow acrylic and small shreds of pornographic images; Dr. Gomik, a continuation of a series Meese worked on for German magazine Gomik; and Dr. You, works dotted with “happy mouths,” as the artist calls them, taken from porn mags.

Jonathan Meese was born in Tokyo in 1970 and now lives and works in Berlin and Hamburg. He is represented by Contemporary Fine Arts in Berlin and Bortolami Gallery in New York.
