Jude Griebel’s work presents sculptures of hybrid bodies, whose anatomy is merged with their surroundings. These figures are compromised by situations of consumption, excess and disregard, played out on their dioramic surfaces. In these works, he is not so much interested in how waste is generated, but rather how we re-digest popular images of accumulation and environmental degradation, weaving them into the fabric of our subconscious. The sculptures embody these internalized and conflicted narratives of want and ruin, reifying them in monstrous and mythological proportions. Though informed by broader cultural desires and anxieties, the works resonate at a more personal level through the use of playful humor and autobiographical reference.
Jude Griebel received an MFA in sculpture and ceramics from Concordia University in 2014 and has worked in residence in institutions including Halle 14 Center for Contemporary Art, Leipzig, and MASS MoCA, North Adams. He has recently exhibited at the Spinnerei Archiv Massiv, Leipzig; Esker Foundation; Calgary; dc3 Art Projects, Edmonton; Galerie Sturm, Nuremberg; The Redpath Museum, Montreal; and presented a major sculptural installation in Future Station: The 2015 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art at the Art Gallery of Alberta. In April 2017, his public sculpture Plastic Ghost was mounted in the city center of Jyväskylä, Finland. Griebel has recently been awarded grants by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and he is a three-time recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation grant for international emerging artists.judegriebel.com
