Profile
Artist

James Webb is an interdisciplinary artist whose work often makes use of ellipsis, displacement and détournement to explore the nature of belief, and the dynamics of communication in our contemporary world. Recent projects include a solo show at the Hordaland Kunstsenter, Norway and the creation of an associative audio guide for the famous Skogskykogården cemetery in Stockholm. He has presented at institutions such as the Palais de Tokyo, Paris; CCA Kitakyushu, Japan, and the Darat al Funun in Amman, Jordan. Major international exhibitions include the 12th Biennale de la Habana, 55th Biennale di Venezia, 3rd Marrakech Biennale, the 2009 Melbourne International Arts Festival and the 9th Biennale d’Art Contemporain de Lyon. His work is represented in the collections of the Iziko South African National Gallery, Johannesburg Art Gallery, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum, the Kunstmuseen Krefeld, the Khalid Shoman Foundation, Amman, and Vranken Pommery, Reims.
