Jennifer Ireland is a research based, multi-medium artist, working to question with wonder; ways of knowing and ways of being in land. Ireland strives to make work that is mindful of situation, site, context, and access. This ethic is found in her work through materials and methods which are often light, sustainable and provisional. Ireland’s practice ranges from drawing, photography, video, and sculpture, to site-sensitive installation and performance. Each of their works strives to operate as speculative wayfinding in this Anthropocenic time.
As a Treaty 7 person of settler descent, Ireland’s home is in Mohkinstsis/Calgary and they are grateful to be a Treaty 7 person and and committed to the responsibilities thereof.
Ireland holds a BA in Philosophy from the University of Calgary, studied drawing and sculpture at Alberta University of the Arts, and recently graduated with a Masters of Fine Arts at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
