Jemma Woolmore (b.1983) is a New Zealand artist working across installation and audio-visual performance.
Blurring the boundaries between real and virtual, Jemma’s work explores the spatial and emotional possibilities of light and image in performative environments. Often blending video, sound and sculptural mediums her works operates between physical and virtual worlds.
Inspired by naturally occurring structures, and imbued with a sense of science fiction otherworldliness, Jemma’s work uses recurring geometric symbols to interrogate the fragile boundary between Utopia and Dystopia. In her carefully crafted performances crystalline structures and abstract textural landscapes fluctuate ambiguously in scale between the micro and macro, responding intuitively with sound and environment.
Recent presentations of her work include: ISM hexadome installation with Lara Sarkissian at Martin Gropius Bau (DE), Bach the Minimalist collaboration with La Tempête (FR), Ephemeral Geometry, Les Dominicains (FR), ‘Sound Affects’ at Sonos Studio (USA), Performances at Mapping festival (CH), MIRA (ES), Node festival (DE), Convergence festival (UK) and Spektrum (DE).
She currently lives and works in Berlin.
