Fiona Jack

Fiona Jack constructs a series of abstract maps and marks which investigate the shifting social and political parameters that define structures of the city. Jack’s recent work includes books, wallpaper, flags, billboards and installations that in various ways investigate definitions and interpretations of social space. Jack’s interest in exploring the ways we demarcate the physical and social limitations of public space are manifested in her bill board projects, namely Please Take One, 2004 as part of the Nomad series in London, the NothingTM billboard series in 1997 and The Haiku Project Billboard Series.

Recent shows include Two Projects at Two Rooms, a flag commission from Los Angeles collector Shirley Morales, One Night Gallery in Cuba, and Depth Analysis at Raid Projects in Los Angeles. See River with Dee Williams at The Physics Room in Christchurch.

Jack has an MFA from Cal Arts in Los Angeles and a Bachelor’s degree in design from AUT, New Zealand and is currently on the staff of Afterall – A Journal of Art Context and Enquiry, London. Fiona Jack is currently a Senior Lecturer and Associate Head of School at Elam School of Fine Arts.
