Waddington's Auction House Biography and Notes

Born in 1970 in Fort St. John, British Columbia, Brian Jungen is one of Canada’s most important contemporary artists. Of Swiss and Dunne–za First Nations ancestry, Jungen came to prominence in the 1990s by disassembling and reassembling Nike Air Jordan sneakers to resemble Northwest Coast Aboriginal masks. He would go on to explore his interest in repurposing sports paraphernalia to create sculptures out of catcher’s mitts, baseball bats, and basket ball jerseys pointing to the link between the social and environmental effects of our globalized trade in mass-produced objects. Jungen’s interest in architecture is also integral to his practice evident in his creation of “shelters” for animals as well as people. He is the recipient of both the Sobey Art Award and the Gershon Iskowitz Prize and has exhibited, and is collected, worldwide.
