example: an exegetical study of mundane architecture

The artist Jim Lockey presents three new works in response to Emanuel Swedenborg’s theological writing. The exhibition, installed throughout Swedenborg House, includes: the exegetical study of mundane architecture, photographs of hidden realities, and documentation of a pilgrimage to discover all of art. Whilst the narratives Jim creates within his works are never more than plainly fictional they invite close inspection of our distinctions between what is real and what is imagined.

Jim Lockey lives and works in Kent, UK. Jim was born in 1987, and is married to fellow artist Katy Norton. He completed his Masters and BA hons degree in Fine Art at The University For The Creative Arts (UCA), graduating in 2010. Jim's work is about creating fictions and the process of art itself. Working predominantly with text, video and performance he explores the complex relationship between artifact and viewer. He is the curator at LIMBO Arts, Margate and current Artist in Residence at the Swedenborg Society, London. www.jimlockey.co.uk
