Jean-Ulrick Désert

Jean Ulrich Desert

Jean-Ulrick Désert (b. 1960, Port-au-Prince) is a Haitian–born conceptual and visual artist based in Berlin Germany. Désert’s artworks vary in form: public billboards, actions, paintings, site-specific sculpture, video and art objects. They emerge from a tradition of conceptual work engaged with social and cultural practices.

Well known for “NH2K,” his provocative “Burqa Project,” and his poetic “Goddess Projects,” Désert has said his practice may be characterized as visualizing “conspicuous invisibility.” 

He has exhibited widely at venues including the Grand Palais in France; the Brooklyn Museum, the Studio Museum of Harlem and Walker Art Center in the USA; the Galeria Sztuki Współczesnej Bunkier Sztuki in Poland; the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Savvy Contemporary in Germany, and in galleries and public venues in the Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Ghent, Brussels, Dakar, and Havana Biennials. 

He is the recipient of awards, public commissions, and private philanthropy, including LMCC Lower Manhattan Cultural Council U.S., the Villa Waldberta–Munich, Kulturstiftung der Länder (Germany), and Cité des Arts (France). He received his bachelor of arts at Cooper Union and masters in architecture at Columbia University (New York), and has been an invited lecturer and critic at universities in the United States (Princeton, Yale, Columbia), Germany (Humboldt University), and France (École supérieure des Beaux-Arts). He previously advised and taught for Trans Art Institute (New York). 

Désert was selected by Minister of Culture as the solo artist to represent the Haiti pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale (2019)

From the WiDiMibaWi Art Prize 2022/23 Jury:

Jean-Ulrick Désert’s body of work is impressive in its breadth and ingenuity. His decades-long work in Germany has made and shaped spaces for crucial questions and practices. Before most of us have begun working in the city of Berlin, Jean-Ulrick was already here and doing the work without which most of us would not be able to do our own work. We acknowledge his ongoing practice and body of work with this award.

Complex and multi-layered, the way his works nest particular locations, events, and histories within the cosmic and the cosmic within the earthly and everyday, highlights the philosophical and poetical depth of Désert’s approach to artmaking and traverses an incredible number of registers: from the political to the spiritual, and from tragedy to comedy. Désert figuratively pokes, prodes and tickles the grotesque characters he plays on screen and in public places to provoke lingering affective responses to Black experiences in Europe.

This award goes to Jean-Ulrick Désert for his deep engagement with his social/cultural practices. His work has the power to activate the viewer in engaging ways, to connect and reveal intertwined histories. His concern around digital technologies brings to the surface the complex nature of the entanglement of politics with society.

Déserts practice, be it site-specific public installation or museum display, enters into dialogue with surrounding cultural traditions, poignantly commenting on the social relations the artist observes around him. Désert has shown an admirable dedication to research, whilst at the same time demonstrating a deeply personal investment in his projects. His practice, which stretches several decades, is continuously relevant in its examination of identities and identity politics, of gender and race.

biographie en français :

Né à Port-au-Prince, Haïti, le plasticien Jean-Ulrick Désert est diplômé en architecture du Cooper Union et de la Columbia University à New York. Il vit et travaille à Berlin depuis 2002 après des années à Paris. 

Conférencier et critique, Désert a été invité dans des universités telles que Princeton, Yale, Columbia, Humboldt et l'École supérieure des Beaux-Arts à Paris. Il enseigne depuis 2013 à la Trans Art Institute (basée à New York). 

L'art de Jean-Ulrick Désert s'étend sur plusieurs média et méthodes. 

Son oeuvre conceptuelle engage les pratiques sociales et culturelles. Elle est réalisée sous diverses formes : panneaux « billboard », performances, tableaux, sculptures en situ dans l'éspace public, vidéos et objets. Connu pour son « Negerhosen2000 » et pour son « Projet Burqa » (de 2002), Désert associe souvent les iconographies culturelles et la métaphore historique pour perturber, modifier et déplacer les signifiants pré-supposés du public. Il explique sa démarche artistique comme la visualisation de « l'invisibilité ostentatoire ». 

Depuis les années 1990, Désert expose son oeuvre en Europe, aux États-Unis et dans la Caraïbe : au Brooklyn Museum, à la Cité Internationale des Arts à Paris, au NGBK à Berlin, dans des galeries commerciales et dans des espaces publics à la Havane, en Martinique, à Munich, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Gand et à Bruxelles.
