Jamie Crewe

Jamie Crewe is a beautiful bronze figure with a polished cocotte’s head. She makes artworks with video, text, installation, sculpture, drawing, painting, and more. These works think about constriction: the way people are formed by their cultures, environments and relationships, and the things that herniate from them as a consequence. Recent solo exhibitions include LUX, London; Humber St Gallery, Hull; and Grand Union, Birmingham. And group exhibitions include British Art Show 9; Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach; and ICA London.

4 March 2023

A series of hypnotic, fragmentary encounters reflecting on creativity, desire, identity and transformation. Forms of transgressive potentiality are explored through poppers training videos, VHS tapes documenting an esoteric musical subculture, and a night of ritual shapeshifting in a Boston parking lot.
