closing event on july 29th with ZAIMPH (US), NAOMI KASHIWAGI, KARL D'SILVA, GOB COUSIN, KELLY JAYNE JONES, co-curated with Psykick Dancehall.
Kelly Jayne Jones is a Manchester based artist who is making work that combines performance art, installation, sound and music. Her work is largely based upon the electroacoustic composition tradition with the use of graphic scores, instructions, actions, movement, installation-performance, and audience participation/interaction. She is interested in creating a multi-sensory experience, of sight, sound, smells, space, interaction, communication and exchange. Her recent work has been based upon the themes of the unconscious and asking how can art have the potential to be a supportive environment to explore visceral emotion, psychological awareness and performance as a site for transformation; interpersonally and communally. KJJ has collaborations with Hannah Ellul (White Death), Greta Buitkute (Clout then Grappling) and Andie Brown from These feathers have plumes. She was one half of the group part wild horses mane on both sides, which disbanded in 2016.
She has performed across Europe in various DIY venues and has been commissioned for works with various projects at dOCUMENTA13, Tate Modern, ICA London and CCA Glasgow, Trieze Gallery Paris, Borealis Festival & Kunsthalle Bergen Norway, Tectonics contemporary music festival, Hangar Bicocca gallery Milan and the Huddersfield contemporary music festival (hcmf).
