"Get Permanent Result"
*an exhibition of new work from jinjonjim art
opening reception:
June 6, 6-11 p.m.

jinjonjim art is a Bloomington-based art collective. It is made up of three artists: Crab Jackson, Jeremy Kennedy, and Shane Edge.

The title "jinjonjim" is a group identifier for collaborative art between any or all of the three members, as well as solo works. It is also used as a brand name for "products" designed by the group, the name of a mock design agency, and is generally referenced by any of the three members, for any project, whenever they see fit.

Jackson, Kennedy, and Edge began working together while attending high school. They formed bands, made experimental audio recordings, did absurd and destructive performances and videos, etc. Upon moving to Bloomington in 1998, the trio soon added visual art to their list of outlets. One by one, they began making and exhibiting work as individual artists. After years of sharing ideas and watching each other develop their techniques, the jinjonjim collective came about naturally. Their brand of abstract humor is also a key element, and has always been a common ground between the three. All living in the same neighborhood made these collaborations even easier.

Much of the jinjonjim work manifests itself on the 2-D visual level. A natural choice, seeing as how the body of all three artists' solo careers is painting and drawing. These collaborative canvases draw directly from each artists individual styles, and create scenes where they coexist.

Jijonjim also works off the canvas: designing absurd products, modifying pre-existing objects, and turning inside jokes into something much bigger.

For this latest exhibition "Get Permanent Result", jinjonjim art has created a collection of all new work for Big Car Gallery. Collaborative paintings on medium-large sized canvases, solo pieces in a variety of mediums from all three of the artists, reworked items from the jinjonjim archives, as well as some humorous and surprising oddities will be on display. Musical performances for the evening, will be programmed by jinjonjim art, and will feature: Normanoak, Caethua and Vollmar.
