Janice Kerbel works with a range of material – including print, type, audio recording and, more recently, light – to explore notions of visibility through the inhabitation of forms that both promise and withhold the realisation of subsequent states. Much of her work employs existing languages from a wide range of disciplines, re-imagining them in isolation from their expected use. It is in this way that her practice tries to imagine and develop new forms.
In the past six years, Janice's work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Tate Britain and Chisenhale Gallery in London, as well as internationally in Vancouver, Toronto, Chicago, and Reykjavik. Her work has also been a part of group exhibitions at the Burcharest Biennial in Romania and ‘Biennale de Montreal’ in Montreal, Quebec.
She has received the Paul Hamlyn Award for Artists as well as grants from Arts Partners in Creative Development and Canada Council for the Arts. Her work has been reviewed in Art Monthly, frieze, Art in America, Artforum, and Canadian Art Review.
