Join us for the preview of LOOKY LOOKY by Jacob Kerray.

For his TRG3 commission Jacob Kerray has been invited to explore and respond to the University of Edinburgh’s vast Art Collection to create a new work, or series of works, for the Talbot Rice Round Room.

Kerray’s work draws on the visual cultures that surround his main interests – particularly football, pro wrestling and historical painting. Engaging with the hierarchies of culture, social distraction, mob mentality, myth, belief and taste.

Usually realized as paintings, they are revisions of redundant fantasies. Observing the role of the deification, myth/media faith and power, their relationships with morality and attempts as a culture to achieve a consumable reified thread throughout history, that uses pictures and words as manipulative tools of magic for both ambivalent ‘good and evil’.
