Jacobus Capone is an Australian artist born in 1986.

Embraces futility. Pointlessness. Moments gone. Subtleties. What one knows  and how one experiences time, ones ambivalence inside this historical moment, sense of life as a strange mix of stasis, progression and regression-how “art” addresses this feeling. Value of the transient and ephemeral. Small histories of nothing. Inaction/action. Impulses. All my inabilities-all your inabilities-what it is to be human-truly human. Absurdness of words-dialogue. Ephemeral acts/gestures that exert considerable/extended effort-sometimes for no other reason than to exert the effort. Utilizes durational performance, installation, video/media, drawing painting-blurs boundaries of disciplines.
