Exhibition Text

COOPER COLE is pleased to present, PATHS, a solo exhibition from Jesse Harris.

In this exhibition Harris revisits a 2011 series of photographic fan art engravings relating to his youthful inspiration and continued interest in material language.

Plotter paths cut microgrooves into black vinyl to create objects with combined characteristics of both photographs and phonograph records. The resulting unplayable visual records are inscribed with canonical source images from the 1980s East Bay Punk scene, a site of community-based do-it-yourself music and art serving as inspiration to follow.

Jesse Harris (b. 1981, Toronto, Canada) graduated with a BA (Honours) from the University of Guelph in 2007. Recent and forthcoming solo and group exhibitions include, Cooper Cole, Toronto, Canada; Tomorrow, Toronto, Canada; The Journal, Brooklyn, USA; Side Effects Gallery, Brooklyn, USA; Night Gallery, Los Angeles, USA; The Power Plant, Toronto, Canada; Plug in ICA, Winnipeg, Canada; amongst others. Harris lives and works in Toronto, Canada.

Opening Reception: Friday November 6, 2015 / 6 – 8pm.
