Ars Fischer and Jared Ginsburg are distortionists, enlarging, twisting and severing out of shape the human form. Although working in their own distinctive media their interests and modes have at times a interesting cross-over. Whimsically grotesque Fischer and Ginsburg both have been associated with neo-Dada.

Below the Knee and Big Foot are works that represent severed sections of an over-sized leg, and yet they contain ideas divergent in their morbidity. While in Fischer the idea of a crushing destruction of a Leviathan-like monster seem at the forefront of the conceit, Ginsburg’s Below the Knee conversely is a pathologically more disturbing work referencing murder tropes and their representation. It is there, perhaps, where the two artists themes diverge the most. Where Fischer’s themes seem mostly about the destructive forces of power, both physical and institutional, Ginsburg expresses more interest in personal psychology and art historical representations of the body.

Jared Ginsburg (born 1985, Cape Town, South Africa) graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Cape Town’s Michaelis School of Art in 2010, where he won the Michaelis prize as the top graduate. He currently lives and works in Cape Town.

Jared Ginsburg uses art-making to explore alternative modes of knowledge production and transfer. He recognizes art as a tool, a means to test and probe the world, hoping to nurture new strategies for productive engagement. Ginsburg employs a range of media types, including painting, sculpture, drawing, video and performance.

For his presentation at Frieze Frame, Ginsburg presents a selection of new works that exemplify his multimedia practice. Kinetic sculptures are integral to his repertoire, created by combining found objects in movement with rudimentary methods of construction. In his “Wall painting” series, large-scale canvasses are layered with histories of note-making and drawings – a kind of private archeology, which covers and reveals through a process of painting-over and sanding-away. Seeking “indeterminacy or chance operations” in his process, Ginsburg’s studio plays a significant role; at once a lab, an instrument and a character in conversation.

Jared Ginsburg (born 1985, Cape Town; lives in Cape Town) has exhibited in South Africa, Italy and New York. His fourth and most recent solo exhibition is titled “Interludes” (blank, Cape Town, 2017). Recent group presentations include “I Love You Sugar Kane” (Institute of Contemporary Art Indian Ocean, Port Louis, 2016) and “Artists and Architecture: Variable Dimensions” (Emily Harvey Foundation, Venice, 2016). blank has shown solo presentations by Ginsburg at LISTE Art Fair (Basel, 2014), and the Armory Show special projects (New York, 2016).
