Kelly Jayne Jones is a Manchester based artist making work that combines performance, installation and sound. She began working in experimental concrete music and her practice has expanded to include dance, gesture, sonic drawings, stone sculpture and film.
She is interested in creating a multi-sensory experience that creates possible conditions for communication and exchange. Creating contemporary zones bordering quantum fictions, where communion may have the potential to explore our inner dimensions. She is currently exploring animist ideas around the breath and spirit of mountains and rivers and how we can reconnect with our planet by means of ancient and future rituals. Her work traverses the emotions of desire and anxiety, the comfortable and uncomfortable edges of our inner spaces and social co-existence. She is interested in presence and performance as a site for potential transformation; interpersonally and communally.
KJJ has collaborations with Hannah Ellul (White Death), Greta Buitkute (Clout then Grappling) and Dan Valentine from Rainer Veil and Haris Epaminonda. She was one half of the group part wild horses mane on both sides, which disbanded in 2016. She has performed across Europe in DIY venues and has been commissioned for works with 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, Huddersfield contemporary music festival (hcmf//) and Sheffield Site Gallery. She had a film collaboration with Haris Epaminonda, Chimera shown at Venice Biennale 2019.
