Melanie Jackson

Much of Melanie Jackson's practice has been concerned with the flow of international capital.

She is currently investigating the relationships between nature and technology through a series of experiments with fauna and flora, and the technologies available to her.

Melanie Jackson is a London-based artist with recent solo exhibitions including, Road Angel, Arnolfini, Bristol, and Made in China, Matt's Gallery, London.Her solo exhibition The Ur-pflanze (Part 1) is at The Drawing Room, London (28 April-20 June 2010).

Melanie Jackson tries out tactics of representation which remain provisional rather than definitive, treating the gallery as a stage for experimentation with art roles. Here is mimicry, documentation, myth fabrication, cultural voyeurism, performance, animation, political commentary, music, installation, craft and the cultivation of aesthetic delight.
