Jamie Kane (b. 1989 in Inverness, Scotland) lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland.
Jamie Kane describes his work as expanded assemblage, purposefully using discontinuity and incongruous relationships to explore how meaning is formed or lost. The work has become focused on trying to create a shared sense of unknowing or uncertainty. Interests that permeate through the work are in poetry, improvisation, processes of embodiment and our desire to create structures to form understanding.
Kane graduated from Sculpture and Environmental Art, Glasgow School of Art, Scotland in 2013 and from the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Scotland in 2009.
Solo and group shows include: Life Like, Transmission, Glasgow, Scotland (2015); Possibly around, but not through, Glasgow Project Rooms, Scotland (2014); I don’t know how we got here. I don’t know what to say, Universal Studios, Glasgow, Scotland (2014); Dear Green, Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik, Berlin, Germany (2014). In 2015 Jamie Kane was selected to be part of Rupert’s Alternative Education Programme, Vilnius, Lithuania and a graduate residency at Hospitalfield House, Scotland in 2013. In 2015 he won the Donald Dewar Arts award.
