ABOUT THE ARTIST
Gemma Jones (b.1995) is a performance artist whose work oscillates across visual art and live art. Her practice explores the limitations and external possibilities of the body; in a bid to rethink how time, space and language is felt, visualised and performed.
Interested in the absence and the presence of the performer as well as the documentation of and preservation of liveness, Gemma’s work explores themes of materiality, care, and ableism.
Additionally, their work looks at structures of care for the un-abled artist body and looks to see how such a body can be supported and cared for during and in the process of developing performance art.
Her work has been performed at Art House,(Worpswede), St Gallen Museum (Switzerland), Pipe factory (Glasgow), Stryx Gallery& Vivid Projects (Birmingham) Enclave Projects (London) PTTH:// Gallery (Luzern) and the following festivals Disorder live art Festival (Wolverhampton) Performance and Tha (Liverpool) and Stereoskop Performance Art festival, Civic House (Glasgow).
Gemma is a graduate of B.A (Hons) Painting and Printmaking from the Glasgow School of Art (2018). They have also been in residence at Performance Space (Folkstone) and Lunchtime gallery (Glasgow).
