Jennifer Ireland is a multimedia artist working to reconfigure ways of knowing and ways of being in land through questioning of traditional epistemology and abstract boundaries. Ireland strives to make work that is mindful of situation, site, context and access. This ethic is found in her work through specific materials and methods which are often light, sustainable and provisional. Ireland’s multi-media, research based practice ranges from drawing, photography, video and sculpture to site-sensitive installation and performance. Each artwork is made as a proposition that operates simultaneously as suggestion and possibility for de-colonial wayfinding in the Anthropocene.
Ireland 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.
