In her artistic process, Jessica Williams (b. 1986) collects objects from everyday life, which are then processed and refined. She is based in Norway.
Through language, aesthetic collections, and tragicomedy, Williams' work examines themes such as identity and humans' relationship with nature, consumption, and technology. Collaboration across disciplines and media is an essential part of Williams' work. Although her practice is firmly rooted in self-publishing and experimental artist books, she also works with photography, video, sculpture, and VR.
Lately, Williams has worked with an experimental solo exhibition that spans over an entire calendar year at House of Foundation in Moss and is concerned with publishing, community, and identity. She has previously worked with strange bits of ocean plastic foraged in the inner Oslofjord that look like bits of real rock, and investigated the connection between mycelium and data centers: both of which are gigantic, invisible and affect us more than we know.
