Jacob Whibley

Basé à Toronto, Jacob Whibley travaille principalement le collage et la sculpture. Sa pratique artistique s'inspire des concepts modernistes d'art, d'architecture et du design pour aborder les notions de temporalité, de travail manuel et de technologie. Whibley se concentre sur l'information et les expériences intrinsèques des objets et des formes, en combinant intuitivement histoire, architecture et temporalités ambiguës dans ses compositions et structures formelles.

Jacob Whibley est diplômé du Collège d'art et de design de l'Ontario dans le programme Communication Design. Il compte à son actif plusieurs expositions individuelles, dont imperfect aspect à Open Studio, Toronto (2016), Point and Duration à Bourouina Gallery, Berlin (2014), More than Two (Let it Make Itself) à The Power Plant, Toronto (2013) et Freedom of Assembly au Oakville Galleries, Oakville (2012). Son travail a été acquis par la Collection RBC, la Collection BMO, la Collection TD et le Musée des beaux-arts de l'Ontario.
