Jacob Gils confronts both Danish photography and in a broader sense Western photography and art. He questions his own artistic allegiance as well a that of the photographic genre and his art represents a social phenomenon that is at the very heart of contemporary art dialogue today. It balances on the edge of reality and dream, the abstract and the realistic. - "In my ongoing project, Movement, I strive to give visible shape to the relationship between my own concrete physical movement in the production phase and the established environment or familiar sites chosen as chosen content. By layering multiple exposures I wish to generate engaging interpretations of iconic structures and landscape sceneries. Fragmented, draped and distorted the images invite the onlooker to come closer and discover the details, which do not reveal themselves from a distance."
Collectively, the images in this show become the symbolic mark of our monumental achievements as well as our constructive and destructive play. - The images may be of some of the most recognizable objects carried in, lost, discarded and forgotten on the beach. As we continue to dig and dig and build and build, we uncover more questions than answers about life. I find it's the looking back in time, looking at our worldwide pursuit of industriousness that gives me a sense of disquiet about where we are all headed. We have made plenty of monuments to ourselves and we've enjoyed our play, but we need to start digging with a different sense of purpose with our shovels.
