Fringe Projects 2016: Zenjail by artist JPW3

Sep 8 - 11, 2016

The forthcoming temporary public art commission, Zenjail by Los Angeles-based artist JPW3 is composed of cast aluminum, wood, and cut steel, Zenjail’s design echoes the form of a Japanese-style construction and the contemplative spaces found within them. The structure, marked with a checkered exterior, functions as a site of dichotomies such as peace and violence, nature and architecture, or the presence of zen in jail.

JPW3, b. 1981 lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. He received his MFA from the University of Southern California in 2012, and his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2005. JPW3’s practice lies in experiments continuously relating found, fabricated, and raw elements and the transfer of energy between them. Recent solo exhibitions include Night Gallery (Los Angeles), Michael Jon & Alan (Miami), Martos Gallery (New York), and Galerie Nagel Draxler (Cologne).
