GRIMM is pleased to announce a new solo exhibition by Matthew Day Jackson (1974) in Amsterdam.
For his third solo show with the gallery, Jackson’s focus has shifted to human sciences, natural history and the demonic, building upon familiar themes of technological advancement and the ‘horriful’ consequences it brings. Our complicit relationship to virtually all modes of existence through social media and current networks of trade universalize this perspective. Jackson uses both traditional crafts and cutting-edge techniques to make work that exposes the layered and often dark relationships between technology’s abstractions and the palpable effects of time. Drawings, paintings and sculpture come together in new and surprising forms weaving complicated yet succinct connections throughout the exhibition.
