Jessica Scott


Jessica Scott (she/her) is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in London. She uses the domestic in her work as a backdrop for exploring personal and cultural ideas about home, heritage, identity and the politics of shared experiences. She sees the experiences and rhythms of home life and domestic rituals as something from which we can understand some of the fundamentals of being human - you can go to the other side of the world and people are still folding sheets and washing up and arguing and falling in love as they go. Her work taps into these often tacit exchanges, trains of thought and ways of being. Her visual art practice combines social and political ideas with traditional craft skills, employing these in contemporary ways to create domestic objects and pieces of art that are both beautiful and functional and which can slip into everyday life.
