With his works on paper, his artist’s books, sculptures, photographs, performances, and films, Cameron Jamie (Los Angeles, CA, US, 1969 – Paris, FR) has for some thirty years been exploring identity, psychological and physical transformations of the self, processuality, and correspondences between humans and nature. In his work, the boundaries between the representational and the abstract become blurred. Jamie creates his own cosmos from folklore and mythologies, nourished by his intensive study of psychology and sociology as well as his analyses of the pictorial worlds of popular culture and fictional self-images.
Jamie’s tireless, everyday drawing process and his constant acts of “thinking” with his pencil form the foundation of his entire oeuvre. This exhibition will therefore focus for the first time on the groups of works that Jamie calls his “tribes” – drawings, monotypes, lithographs, and “ceramic drawings” – and on his diary-like artist’s books. The result will reveal his process of “working in layers.”
A hybrid publication in German and English, situated between an exhibition catalogue and an artist’s book, will appear to accompany the exhibition.
