Jesse Jones: NO MORE FUN AND GAMES

  • Print

Irish artist Jesse Jones continues the gallery's 2016 theme of Artist as Witness, in her new work entitled No More Fun and Games. The artist transforms the gallery space into a cinematic experience through sound and architectural interventions. She has commissioned a new composition from renowned American film composer Gerald Busby, who created the score for Robert Altman’s 1977 film 3 Women. In her installation Jesse Jones turns our attention to feminism in Ireland, exploring how individuals share, understand, or experience collective memory. Working with a collaborative curatorial team to create a Feminist Parasite Institution within the exhibition, she explores how art by women has been valued historically. A series of workshops, performances, tours and writings address the question of gender equality in the construction and commemoration of history.
