JACOB WHIBLEY

just a conspiracy of cartographers, then?

Opening Reception:
Saturday Sept 7th, 2013

6 -10pm

Narwhal Projects is pleased to present Jacob Whibley’s first solo exhibition just a conspiracy of cartographers, then?. Employing collage, sculpture and drawing, Whibley harnesses information and experiences embedded within objects and forms by highlighting their residual traces, marks and histories. In combination, these charged formal structures simultaneously create a sense of ambiguous temporality and familiarity despite their abstraction.

Excerpt from “Jacob Whibley: Collaging Contemporary Nostalgia” by Bill Clarke:

For the past six years, Toronto-based Jacob Whibley has produced a body of work that looks as if it could have been made in Europe between the two World Wars. This is not meant as a criticism, but as a comment on his on-going interest in specific aesthetics and art histories, and a fidelity to particular materials. Often working in the difficult, but far too easily maligned, medium of collage, the artist’s work to date is rooted in the language of early modernist art, architecture and design. Russian constructivism, the Bauhaus and de Stijl, and the artists affiliated with those movements − Wassily Kandinsky, El Lissitzky, Josef Albers and Piet Mondrian − clearly influence the sophisticated forms that Whibley’s work takes; however, his collages and sculptures are much more than simple exercises in homage.
