Gabriel Jones | Artefact

online :

Jones’ Artefact series hovers between photography and silk screened video stills, between the imaginary and the hyper real, leaving an arsenal of impressions that transcend time and ultimately loose their threatening effect.

Gabriel Jones collaborated with Arcade Fire to photograph The Suburbs, their Grammy award-winning album, and has exhibited in various institutions and galleries throughout Europe and North America. He currently lives in Paris and is represented by Galerie Bugdahn und Kaimer, Dusseldorf.

“Gabriel Jones’ photography creates an emphasis on emptiness and absence. His images hosts color as an intrinsic element for its representation of the real. Coming from an improbable road- movie, these urbanscapes register within the realms of expectation, open to all possibilities. The underlined zone -literally, the suburbs- becomes a theatrical landscape where areas evolve within their reduced immensities.”
