In Inceptum Finis Est (In the Beginning is the End) is an ongoing rumination on the nature of creation. Focusing on creation stories from around the world, Jem uses textual repetition and the calligraphic mark in commentary on the persistence of storytelling and ritual as a method of understanding humanity’s place in the universe.
OPENING EVENT Friday February 7 from 6-9PM. Jem will give a performance at 7PM immediately followed by an artist talk and Q&A. Additional gallery hours are Saturday/Sunday the 8/9 from 1-4PM & Jem will be there to guide you through the show and answer any questions you may have.
Jem is an interdisciplinary, research-based artist currently located in Manitou Springs, Colorado. Their recent work focuses on spirituality by addressing the ritualization of repetitive action and the sacredness of the ordinary through hands-on, utilitarian manipulation of materials, also touching on the power of storytelling, physics and mathematics, and the body. Their work spans from sculpture, painting and drawing, performance, printmaking, installation, sound, and the Word. They are currently pursuing a B.A. in Visual Arts and Art History at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
