JARED GINSBURG
Body Parts

10/10/2013 - 16/11/2013

Jared Ginsburg's latest series of works, Body Parts, is an experiment in figuration and the conversation between pattern, drawing and object. Odd, erotic ink monoprints and carbon copy drawings are developed into outsized sculptures of body parts, manufactured from pieces of canvas that are stitched together and stuffed. These soft body parts trigger more drawing, so that the process is an endless movement from drawing to object and back again. Offcuts from the sculptures in turn form large-scale abstract compositions on canvas. According to Ginsburg, Body Parts is about "figuring things out through either drawing or making".

Jared Ginsburg (b. 1985, Cape Town, South Africa) graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Cape Town’s Michaelis School of Art in 2010, where he won the Michaelis Prize as the top graduate. He currently lives and works in Cape Town. Ginsburg’s practice encompasses a range of sculptural, conceptual, and formal concerns. His installation work often involve aspects of Kinetic art: arbitrary objects are mechanically lifted into the air or ephemeral machines constructed out of bamboo, or found objects (like a wooden ladder) spin or twirl slowly in space. While reminiscent Arte Povera, Ginsburg’s installations, videos and drawings are conceptually grounded in the ambiguities of perception, time and materially (and the difficulties of consolidating these aspects). 'Body Parts' is his second solo exhibition at blank projects.
