  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

Jennifer Abessira’s method is impulsive and miscellaneous. When browsing through her works, you may encounter a mixture of global and anecdotal: close-ups from Nouvelle Vague films next tofamily scenes set in her house in Israel. The artist doesn’t separate art and inspiration from a private life — and draws us to a reflection on our digital life versus the one we actually live.

Abessira became known in 2011 for her project Elastique, a title reminiscent of a Charlotte Gainsbourg 1987 song. First in a blog format, then embracing different digital and physical forms, Elastique attempted to classify a multi-faceted reality and create a new order for the chaotic present. The clashes of her visual imagery find unity and meaning together.

More recently, the artist created a visual narrative inspired of archival material and her digital works - 72 physical photographs displayed outside London Bridge Station and inspiring over 8 million people physically. Her art is an escape, a wayto romanticize the existence which sometimes can feel too random. In the permanent present of Jennifer Abessira, our everyday retreats into a state of timelessness.

Jennifer is directing her practice towards brand collaboration and digital research. Jennifer has collaborated with fashion brands, photographers, musicians, filmmakers and magazines. In 2011, she collaborated with Vivienne Westwood on her project 100 Days of Active Resistance. More recently, Jennifer has collaborated with ITunes and Petite Meller, creating the cover image for the singer’s new album. Jennifer has exhibited her work with MTArt as part of Fragments Of during London Frieze 2015, with MTArt at Triumvirate in Brussels and spoken at MTArt conferences. Jennifer’s Elastique Project encapsulates her artistic vision. Started in 2011 as an investigation into the hyper reality of the Internet, it is an on-going multi-platform display of her works. Her photographs, displayed as diptychs, create associations between images that otherwise would never be paired or connected. Jennifer is also currently finishing a residency in Paris at the Cité Internationale des Arts that features a concluding exhibition, La Tangente, enabled by Impossible Project. ennifer is directing her practice towards brand collaboration and digital research. Her immersive works and fresh, flexible approach to creativity perfectly reflects today’s immersive and virtually-led understanding of art.
