About Jude Griebel
Jude Griebel creates sculptures of hybrid bodies, whose anatomy is merged with their surroundings. These figures are compromised by situations of consumption, excess, and disregard, played out on their dioramic surfaces. In these works, he is not so much interested in how waste is generated, but rather how we re-digest popular images of accumulation and environmental degradation, weaving them into the fabric of our subconscious. His work has recently been presented at Galerie Sturm, Nuremberg; the Redpath Museum, Montreal; and in Future Station: The 2015 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art, Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton. Griebel was a 2015 artist-in-residence at HALLE 14 – Center for Contemporary Art, Leipzig, and was awarded the inaugural Alberta Foundation for the Arts residency at the International Studio and Curatorial Program in Brooklyn. He is two-time recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation grant for emerging artists.
