Photography, performance, and a needle are central to Jessa Fairbrother's (b. UK)
practice. She uses the body-as-site to explore communal meanings and is concerned
with making explicit the moment when performed gesture and gaze of the viewer collide.
She frequently appears in her own images, piercing and embroidering them to employ
process as action. Needle perforations and thread puncture the skin of the photograph,
extending image-objects beyond a single time and space. Funding from QEST has
enabled the self-taught embroiderer to undertake formalised training with the Royal
School of Needlework to complete the Certificate in Technical Embroidery, perfecting
techniques for use in her contemporary photographic work. Fairbrother's work is held in
various collections including Yale Center for British Art (New Haven, US) and libraries at
the Victoria and Albert Museum (London, UK) and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
(US).
