Working with a wide variety of materials, from ceramics and marble to paint and digital collage, Jessica Harrison’s (b.1982) practice explores the mechanics of perception and the fallibility of observation through an examination of the interaction between the visual and the tactile.

Her Interest lies in how we handle, interpret and navigate materials, objects and space and how this process can define the shape of the body. The things she makes propose a re-imagining of these definitions, offering an alternative shape to our perception of things, using the simplicity of materials to explore the complexity of the sensory body.
