Jennifer Ireland

Jennifer Ireland is a multimedia artist, whose research-based practice ranges from drawing, photography, video and sculpture to site-sensitive installation and performance. She is working to develop different ways of looking and relating to land and nature through the questioning of traditional epistemological approaches and how this relates to embodiment, landscape and place. Ireland strives to make work that is mindful of situation, context, access and impact – both environmental and social. This environmental ethic is found in her work through specific materials and methods which are often light, sustainable and provisional. Each artwork is a proposition that operates simultaneously as suggestions and possibilities for wayfinding in the Anthropocene.

She holds a BA in Philosophy from the University of Calgary, studied drawing and sculpture at Alberta University of the Arts, and recently graduated from the 2018 Masters of Applied Arts at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
