Jesse Jones

Jesse Jones is a Dublin-based artist. Her practice crosses the media of film, performance and installation.

Often working through collaborative structures, she explores how historical instances of communal culture may hold resonance in our current social and political experiences. Jones’ practice is multi-platform, working in film installation, performance and sculpture. Her recent work proposes a re-imagining of the relationship between the Law and the body through speculative feminism.  Using a form of expanded cinema she explores magical counter-narratives to the State drawn from suppressed archetypes and myth. She represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale 2017.

Solo exhibitions include, ICA Singapore 2017, Hugh Lane Gallery 2016, CCA Derry 2013, Artesonje Seoul 2013.

This year she will tour Ireland at Venice between Ireland and the UK, launching in Project Art Centre in June 2018 and Talbot Rice Gallery Edinburgh.
