The Bass Museum presents Jérémy Gobé’s first Solo exhibition in the United States entitled Freedom Guiding Wool - an installation which he will create in situ for the BassX space at the Miam Beach Library.
Jérémy Gobé, who lives and works in Paris, creates poetic works by transforming various objects or materials (such as knitted wool, fabric, rope, felt, recycled furniture parts...) through different processes such as drawing and sculpting. The installation Freedom Guiding Wool, which will be created during the artists’ Fountainhead Residency in Miami, will use video, drawing and kinetic sculpture. In the room-sized installation, Gobé uses fabric (red jacquard wool, claimed from a shuttered factory in rural France) and mesh to create a dramatic enveloping space.
Jérémy Gobé graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in 2012. He was nominated for the prestigious 2015 FID Prize for drawing, awarded to emerging artists in France. His work was recently presented in the exhibition Le Fil Des Possibles at L’Espace de l’Art Concret (Mouans Sartoux), but also at the CENTQUATRE (Paris) and the Palais de Tokyo (Paris).
