Cameron Jamie: Bodies, Faces, Heads 
21. October – 10. December 2017

Opening: Friday, 20. October 2017, 6-8pm

With Bodies, Faces, Heads the Kölnischer Kunstverein is presenting Cameron Jamie’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany. The work of the artist, who was born in Los Angeles
in 1969 and now lives in Paris, encompasses wooden sculptures, ceramics, drawings, prints, photographs, films and artist’s books and can thus be counted among the most diverse contributions to current art and culture.

The central subject of Jamie’s work is the social as well as cultural life of America and Europe, with the result that his practice involves anthropological, ethnological and also psychological perspectives. Nonetheless, his many-faceted creations never have the character of scientific studies; instead, they resemble efforts to gain a closer understanding of an individual or
societal form of being which bears great metaphorical potential.

In the course of this presentation, older and more recent sculptures and monotypes will be
used to provide extensive insight into the practice of this internationally celebrated artist.
