Ianthe Jackson
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Sunset Park



ARTIST STATEMENT: Living in this contemporary life, I have transplanted myself over and over again. When I think of people who live in the place they are truly from for generations upon generations they must have a very different sensibility than someone such as myself who is far from ‘home’. There is always a retracing of family histories, listening to family stories and trying to pin down people, places, facts. There are multiple origins and piecemeal information that is hard to connect. In creating the sense of home when we have been transplanted through generations, we are connecting the dots of a past. A past learned through stories and visits, a tour of lives gone by. We are spread throughout the continents and so much goes unanswered. I was told if I ever go to Ireland everything will make sense, I will understand who I am and where I am from. I have yet to travel there. In making drawing, sculpture an animation I am delving into these ideas. The work contemplates our relationship with the natural world, landscape and manmade structures. It considers the relationship of structures and nature, land and land use, the creation of home, and belonging within these relationships and places.
