Jesse Jones

b. 1978, Dublin

Jesse Jones is a Dublin based Irish artist. In her films and videos she explores historical gestures of communal culture which hold resonance in our current social and political landscape. Jones’s practice is multi platform, working in film installation, performance and sculpture.

Solo exhibitions include Artsonje centre Seoul in 2013 and NO MORE FUN AND GAMES at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. Jones has been selected to represent Ireland at the 57th Venice Biennale.
