Artist Talk, Jimmy Limit

Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022 – 4 p.m.
Studio B, Room 247A, Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts

Jimmy Limit is a photo based artist working with sculpture, ceramics, video, installation and book works. Although varied in form, Limit’s practice explores the relationship between image and object, and between the original and multiples, with corresponding perceptions of worth, communication, purpose and alteration. Borrowing the aesthetics of advertising and historical still-life, the photographs call attention to desire and value in late-capitalism and the lasting impact of goods in the era of Anthropocene and continued environmental crisis. The works imagine a future archaeology where the detritus of our current moment is uncovered and deciphered: arranged, stacked and made sense of.
