About the Work
Drawings from the fringes of the world.
Periphery places; isolated, rarely visited and often forgotten. Acting as both viewer and maker, these quiet and sombre scenes of disparate locations are drawn from a distance.
The undesired (place) is dreamt of by the psycho-traveller, traversing images, times and histories and asking:
What is today like there?
What is the weather doing?
How does it feel to be there?
Who calls this home?
About the Artist
Mez Kerr Jones’ practice explores the connections between power and spatiality, place, profit and ownership. Her research addresses personal and communal feeling, representation and geographical identity to understand the relationships formed between a place and its inhabitants. Working site-specifically and site-responsively, her works consider not only place, but also social and political context, where questions and ideas are articulated through actions and materials. Urban space is the backdrop for many lives and using journeys as a research tool, Mez speculates on how cities function, and on identity, safety and equality. Her works are an expression of her motivation for political and social change.
Mez Kerr Jones is based in London
