MacMillan, Jessica

Skulptur og installasjon

Jessica MacMillan (b. New Hampshire, USA, 1987) lives and works in Oslo, Norway, where she received her MFA from the Academy of Fine Art in 2016. Through a multidisciplinary practice using readymade sculptures and installations, she illustrates concepts within astronomy and their relationship to the actuality of daily life on our planet. It can be argued that in astronomy, reality and appearance are more disconnected than in any other area of human experience. With her projects, MacMillan aims to investigate this gap—not only the tangible, physical distances, but also in the ethics and aesthetics involved.
