Tremble Tremble: Jesse Jones with Tina Kinsella and Lisa Godson
20:00 - 21:30
Please join us for a very special artist talk, Jesse Jones in conversation with Dr Tina Kinsella and Dr Lisa Godson where they will discuss the theories behind Tremble Tremble, the wider political impacts of the work, and art practice in a feminist context.
Jesse Jones threw a spotlight on feminism and women’s issues with her work Tremble Tremble when she represented Ireland at the 57th Venice Biennale / La Biennale di Venezia in 2017. Since then the political landscape has changed dramatically, with calls for change echoing around the world. In the wake of #MeToo, #IBelieveHer, revelations about the gender pay gap, and in the year that that saw Irish citizens go to the polls for an historic referendum vote, Jesse Jones has returned to Dublin with the Irish premiere of this timely work. Jones has transformed Project’s Space Upstairs into a multi-media installation which re-imagines feminist history and law, presenting an artwork she describes as a “bewitching” of the judicial system.
