Jessica Voorsanger

Jessica Voorsanger (b.1965, New York, Us) lives and works in London, UK. Studied a BFA, the Rhode Island School of Design (1987); MA, Fine Art, Goldsmiths College, London (1993). Voorsanger’s work explores the concept of 'celebrity' within popular culture through obsession, fans and media representation. Where historically this began with a subjective focus on fan adulation the work has come to explore these themes in relation to identity, gender and humour using colour, pattern, performance and interactivity as vehicles within a multi-disciplinarian practice. Select solo exhibitions include It’s Always About the Hair Deptford X Commission, Deptford London (2014); Worldstaronestoppopshop Kornhauschen Galerie, Aschaffenberg, DE (2013); I Think I Love You Lounge Festival of Love (Commissioned Installation), Southbank Centre, London (2014); Art Impostors Louis Vuitton Maison, London (2011); Eastenders Whitechapel Art Gallery, London (2009).
