Fiona Jack (New Zealand) - Exhibition


Fiona Jack’s installations/wall paintings investigate the conceptual,

geographical and political definitions of shared space – a space that includes

linguistic, physical, social and historical contexts. 


By calling attention to things as diverse as a list of the nationalities excluded

from a dictionary, to the barriers constructed along borders around the world

since 9/11 in the name of national security, Ms Jack questions the terms and

structures that shape our lives. 


Ms Jack graduated with an MFA from CalArts in Los Angeles in 2005 and has

since exhibited in England, Chile, Australia, USA and New Zealand. She is a

Lecturer at the University of Auckland and lives in New Zealand.


Fiona Jack is a guest of RMIT University through the School of Art

International Artist in Residence Program (AIR) and The South Project Inc.
