CONCRETE ISLAND

Jessica Bradley Art + Projects | Toronto
May 12 - June 16, 2012

Known for video installation, photography and sculpture, Los Angeles-based Canadian artist Jed Lind investigates technologies that highlight the way the natural and the manmade intersect, with particular reference to 1960s and 70s ideology. For his third exhibition at Jessica Bradley Art + Projects, Lind takes the dystopian novel Concrete Island (1974) by J.G. Ballard as the starting point for a new body of work. A modern Robinson Crusoe, Ballard's protagonist crashes his Jaguar between the embankments of London's converging freeways, finding himself stranded on a traffic island. Slowly, he is forced to dissemble his luxury car, fashioning the parts into means of survival, and tools for escape.

Lind also uses the automobile as a site of material possibility, reclaiming and transforming various car parts into a series of sculptures. A set of eight silver gelatin photographs spells out the Latin word "COMMUNIS," which translates to "common" or "public domain," inspired by the ornamental African plant Ricinus communis that has taken root in the desolate spaces around the Los Angeles freeway system.

FLUID GEOGRAPHIES

Jessica Bradley Art + Projects | Toronto
October 23 - November 19, 2008

In the 2005 season Jessica Bradley Art & Projects presented Lind's A False Dawn, an exhibition which included his entrancing video installation Limelight accompanied by a series of related photographs and sculptures. Since then this Los Angeles-based artist has continued to produce works that plumb related yet disparate histories, such as the provisional architecture of the coastal societies of the Hebridies, Buckminister Fuller's utopian legacy symbolized by the geodesic dome, Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader's romantic but doomed idealism and Robert Smithson's revolutionary approach to art making.

The title of this exhibition, Fluid Geographies, refers to a short essay that Fuller wrote recounting the activities of coastal inhabitants contrasted with those of land-bound societies. The former, he claims, are in touch with the ever-changing dynamic of their environment and must constantly redesign their living and working circumstances to adapt. Buckminster Fuller's famous quotation “ But I seem to be a verb” (rather than a noun) appears in this text.

Among the works Jed Lind will present in his second solo exhibition at the gallery is a spectacular sculpture crafted from an aluminum canoe and a series of celestial images of the sky. In these photographs the camera is spun to mimic the rotation of the earth, creating a drawing-like quality.

A FALSE DAWN

Jessica Bradley Art + Projects | Toronto
September 17 - October 22, 2005

A graduate of the California Institute of the Arts, Lind’s video installation Limelight has been acclaimed by Los Angeles Times’ critic Christopher Knight as an accomplished work of conceptual depth and meaning by an emerging artist. Limelight is a haunting two-screen video projection that examines a brief technological moment and the implications of its obsolescence in our perception of time, space and ultimately, nature. Lind will also exhibit a new series of related photographs and two recent sculptures.
