About the Artist

1985 , France

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.
