White Cubicle Toilet Gallery is honoured to present an exhibition by Thomas Dozol. I IS NOW Dozol presents a series of new photographic work which explores the relationship between the body, sign language, abstract geometry and colour codes. For it, Dozol has created a whole alphabet of hand signs screen printed as black light posters. Writing with a non-letter alphabet, images become phrases which become haiku like texts, but which also refer to the silent languages of minorities and subcultures. The back light posters also remind us of propaganda and political posters of the seventies and of the aesthetics of lost utopias. For the exhibition Dozol transforms the White Cubicle into a glow in the dark installation.

THOMAS DOZOL was born in Martinique and studied Economics, Social Studies and Theatre in Paris before moving to New York In 2002 where he became a photographer. His work has been featured in Interview, Vogue Paris, AnotherMan, Apartamento, Kaiserin and Kink. Dozol’s solo exhibitions include 'Entre Temps' at Envoy Gallery in New York in spring 2010 and ‘I’ll be your Mirror’ at Mais Soma in Sao Paulo in autumn of 2010. He also has a twin.
