Jody Gilby (lives in Tonbridge, Kent, UK)
Jody's individual practice seeks to explore the widening gap between traditional medias and new technologies in art. Her work at once embraces and challenges the positives and negatives that surround social media applications such as Instagram and Vine. Exploring the tensions that exist between new ‘instant’ technologies and craftsmanship within art, and consequently, their value and place as art objects in today’s highly competitive art market. Merging conventional techniques such as collage and video with newer social media apps available on the iPhone. The work is subjected to a number of creative processes in which the final outcome is inherently invested with the Labour of Production. Alongside this, Jody’s practice almost always alludes to the 'Illusion of the Real', finding tentative connections through research that gently negotiate the boundaries between fact, fiction and authenticity, using trusted and untrusted formats. Her work has recently featured in Vogue magazine and been twice a Mixed Media showcase winner. Jody's new work is exclusively available through Sedition in digital format.
