Mez Kerr Jones

About

I am an artist and educator, teaching on the Fine Art pathway of the Foundation Course at Kingston.

My work explores the connections between power and spatiality, place, profit and ownership, and blurs the line between art and societal critique. My research addresses personal and communal feeling, representation and geographical identity to understand the relationships formed between a place and its inhabitants. My site-specific and site-responsive works consider not only place, but also social and political context, where questions and ideas are articulated through actions and materials.

I have exhibited both nationally and internationally in contexts including: National Trust sites, radio broadcasts, zines and artist publications, public spaces, in prisons, for housing associations, and in regional and national galleries in France, Canada, Slovakia, Scotland, Wales and England.
