Jack Jeffrey

An Installation

555 Hamilton St

A closeup of artworks in a gallery. The works include sheer white sheets on the wall, a small textile object on the floor, and a tall and white box, with open flaps.

Jack Jeffrey will exhibit a new installation work at the Contemporary Art Gallery. This installation uses industrial, domestic and fine art materials which are historically charged — such as fishnet, chicken wire, cardboard, plaster, and paint. Objects created from these substances are interwoven with the gallery space to propose “a situation in which to consider the production of meaning.” Throughout the installation various processes are used: some of the objects are purchased, some methodically produced by the artist, with varying degrees of finish and craft. The constructions occupy specific placements to one another within the gallery. This installation simultaneously intensifies the associations that hover between the materials and processes while at the same time eroding the possibility of an emergent narrative.
