THE MENDING OF BOREDOM WOULD BE RATHER DIFFICULT WITHOUT THE MIDWIFE'S HANDS

in the fog a mild romance with a precise set of methods stands at attention and flips a coin — yesterday’s archive; independent numbers suffering from naiveté and tweeness with time to waste a perpetual performance of adolescent pride — stacked time stands to fall like vertical script for the nonspecialist reader wasted glances; branch overhead looking as dante in reverse Words by Jacob Whibley + Alex Bowron

Jacob Robert Whibley is a Toronto based artist focusing on the information and experiences embedded within objects and forms by way of intuitively blending histories, architectures and ambiguous temporalities into formal compositions and structures. Most recently he has shown at Material Art Fair (Mexico, 2015), Bourouina Gallery (Berlin, 2014), Narwhal Contemporary (Toronto, 2013), and Espace de l'art concret (France, 2012).
