Jacob Robert Whibley

Drawing inspiration from historian James Gleick’s Time Travel, Whibley’s exhibition at 8eleven investigates linear trajectories of time and forward momentum as archaic and privileged notions. Abandoning a strict notion of past, present, and future, Whibley combines his multidisciplinary, image-based practices to create a dynamic exhibition of photographs, text-based pieces, and sculptures. His work seeks to investigate how time and progress can be seen as cyclical, bisected, stacked, interwoven, and dismantled.
