  • JEMA | A Message from JEMA’s Founder
    demolished section of the Arcade Building where Robert Venturi s Seattle Art Museum SAM currently occupies Erickson s store was on the third floor and looked out over 2nd Avenue I am not sure of his store s exact location but I would guess it roughly occupied the space now inhabited by the Seattle Art Museum s Native American Gallery JEMA is small replica of the SAM s s Native American Gallery minus the art Arcade Building This newly built miniature space will function as an actual museum in its own right The replica is built one quarter inch one foot scale The scaled down size of the space is also reflected in the duration of exhibits Exhibitions at JEMA usually run proportionally shorter lengths of time making exhibitions roughly 9 hours and 15 minutes in duration Of course on certain occasions exhibitions may be held over by popular demand JEMA is a location variable museum space It is housed in a sturdy but stylish 16 x12 x9 aluminum carrying case JEMA is also a quite young museum It celebrated its Grand Opening on July 25th 2003 at 2 30 p m in the lobby of the Seattle Art Museum The opening lasted two minutes Sean Miller in front of SAM holding a picture of the site s previous structure the Arcade Building JEMA with the Seattle Art Museum in the background JEMA s mission is to display and collect innovative and provocative con temporary art and or offer exhibitions that allow people to think differently about the nature of art and art practice JEMA s design allows it to perform and embody numerous aspects of art and art practice in a simultaneous manner JEMA is a museum display case crate exhibition space sculpture photographic series performance installation site specific

    contemporary man re reading historical postures attitudes and norms with disorienting detail deliberately ambiguous and open ended The mutations present in these portraits are implausible and outlandish yet obedient to certain mathematical principles we might call unifying laws a host of ills that hover between the body and the mind feeding the dead yet maintaining a strong contemporary relevance Despite the use of reliable materials and figurative precision there are many ways to read and interpret the works We could draw from these headless gentlemen and moss spewing ladies themes of incompleteness or isolation social order or aesthetics We could think of the honorable characters smart uniforms impressive facial hair donning various species of succulent plant life as simple stories or contested philosophies to explain difficult or dark parts of human life as hybrids or hosts ridiculous and dignified at the same time Paraic Leahy discusses his exhibition at JEMA by writing As my paintings and drawings are very time consuming I generally work on a miniature scale as opposed to the large wall paintings that take up the galleries of the JEMA Museum The idea of scale was endless within the museum it focused and adapted my work in an honest and precise manner Paraic Leahy Bio Paraic graduated from Limerick School of Art and Design in 2008 with an Honours Degree in Fine Art Painting He was an original Founding Member and Technician with Occupy Space an artist led gallery in Limerick City He recently exhibited a Solo Show at Ormston House Limerick Past projects include Isolated Borders The Old Police Station Art Center London The Water Tower Art Fest Sofia Bulgaria The Woods Limerick Something tells me there s something happening at the zoo at the Kevin Kavanagh Gallery Dublin Imposing Nature Monster Truck Gallery Dublin and
