Jessy is an artist working with photography and collage, born and based in south London. She explores her concerns with the dislocations between the constructed and the natural worlds, and the intellectual and the physical, through the tensions between digital and analogue image making. Her work is process-led, a form of self-expression and a campaign to see ourselves as part of a greater whole.
Currently showing at Sid Motion Gallery and named as one of Firecracker’s 10 Women to Watch in 2020 on PHmuseum, she has exhibited at Peckham 24, the Cob Gallery and the AOP Gallery. She has curated and produced shows in St Giles Church Crypt, Camberwell and The Viking Gallery, Margate. Her work has been featured in Der Greif, Photoworks, Aint-Bad, Uncertain States, Humble Arts Foundation and Foto Femme United and she is a member of Peckham Levels. She has collaborated with NGOs in the UK and Latin America, facilitating participatory photography workshops as a means to educate and empower.
