On Sundrun

December 7, 2009 · Print This Article

 

This Wednesday evening is the opening reception for Matthew Paul Jinks’ exhibition On Sundrun at Gallery 400.  Matthew Paul Jinks’ work consistently deals with issues of memory, ritual, and inherited identity.  Personal and cultural identity enacted, passed on, shared, re-enacted.  On Sundrun addresses identity relationships of English, Indian, and Pakistani individuals as postcolonial cultural representatives through an evolving game spontaneously elaborated on cricket.  Jinks’ exhibition On Sundrun includes sculpture, film, sound installation and a performance in the gallery space.  Jinks explores cricket as an enactment of the mythology of cultural identity exploring the effects of assimilation. When speaking to his work as a Photobucketwhole Jinks says, “My work performs culture and collects memory.  My installations, videos and performances appropriate and de-regulate social and historical constructs: self, nation, history. I use image and language as formal stand-ins for the latent territories that underlie these constructs and the thresholds that link them.”  I think this exhibition will be an exceptional experience that continues Jinks’ project of providing a platform for discussion and experience that fosters the ideological possibility for reconciliation through humor, engagement, and cultural iconological tradition. 

Jinks graduated his undergrad in 2005 from The Glasgow School of Art in Scotland, U.K. Since completing his MFA as a University Fellow at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2008, Jinks has exhibited in the U.K and the U.S., most recently at the Green Lantern Gallery and the Hyde Park Art Center, here in Chicago.
