JESSE JONES:
SYLLABUS

Opening: JESSE JONES - SYLLABUS
vrijdag 24 januari 2020, 20:00

Op 24 januari opent Kunsthal Gent met een nieuwe installatie van de Ierse kunstenaar Jesse Jones, getiteld Syllabus. Een monumentaal, 17m hoog semi-transparant gordijn met de arm en hand van de feministische wetenschapper Silvia Federici schept een nieuwe ruimte in Kunsthal Gent. De ruimte maakt plaats voor lokale (activistische) initiatieven en voor het lezen van een syllabus, waarin Silvia Federici en Jesse Jones teksten van verschillende auteurs bijeenbrengen. De tentoonstelling is een vertaling van een contract tussen Kunsthal Gent en de kunstenares over het gebruik van het werk en blijft zichtbaar zolang de condities van het contract worden nageleefd.

SYLLABUS bouwt verder op het eerder werk 'NO MORE FUN AND GAMES - Feminist Parasite Institution', gerealiseerd in de Hugh Lane gallery in Dublin in 2016.

Jesse Jones woont en werkt in Dublin en geeft les in beeldende kunst aan het CIT Crawford College of Art & Design in Cork. Haar praktijk kruist de media van film, performance en installatie. Ze werkt vaak in samenwerkingsstructuren en onderzoekt hoe historische voorbeelden van gemeenschappelijke cultuur een rol kunnen spelen in onze huidige sociale en politieke ervaringen. Recente tentoonstellingen en projecten omvatten onder meer het belangrijke nieuwe werk In the Shadow of the State, in opdracht van Artangel (UK) en Create met financiële steun van Ireland 2016, en gemaakt in samenwerking met kunstenaar Sarah Browne. Jesse Jones vertegenwoordigde Ierland op de Biënnale van Venetië in 2017. Tot maart 2020 presenteert het Guggenheim in Bilboa (ES) haar solotentoonstelling 'Temblad Temblad'.
