About this Item

Jared Ginsburg
South African 1985
The Natural World (part 6)
signed and dated 2015
collage with Indian ink on paper
64 by 90cm excluding frame


In general terms, Ginsburg is invested in the process of art-making as a means to explore alternative modes of knowledge production and transfer. He recognises art as a tool, a means to test and probe the world, hoping to nurture strategies for productive engagement with it. In pursuit of this, he creates rules, games and exercises that propel him into states of play and catalyse reactions between himself and his material partner, be it bamboo, ink, paper or other. The studio is significant in this equation; at once a lab, an instrument and a character in conversation.
