BIO SNAP SHOT

Alicia Jones is a Performance/Installation artist currently residing in Brisbane. A heritage of Aboriginal, Welsh and English, Alicia is a combination of many worlds, old and new.  Questioning modes of education, knowledge systems and the control of information through the use of objects and gesture as cultural signifiers, Alicia’s body of work stems from her journey back to country. Alicia’s installations are simultaneously created to activate healing spaces by connecting people with their natural environment.  Alicia's research centres on the effectiveness of performance installation on releasing trauma and promoting inclusive societies.  

Highlights of Alicia’s artistic career include solo commissions with the National Gallery of Australia (10) and multiple commissions with the State Library of Queensland (07-10) and The Dreaming Festival (09-10).  Alicia was selected as part of a National performance laboratory TIME PLACE SPACE (08) and is a member of OZFRANK Theatre Company, training in the FSAK Actor Training Method since 2004.  Since 2007 Alicia has presented solo works in group showings at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Art (Brisbane), Metro Arts (Brisbane), The Arts Factory (Brisbane) and internationally at Fetterfield Performance Festival (Singapore).

Alicia’s praxis is complimented by working successfully in the Queensland Community Cultural Development sector for the past 10 years as producer/facilitator/teacher/mentor and in business management for 16 years (including Cultural Event Management, Film, Construction, Justice, Commercial Property Management and Hospitality industries).  Alicia is the Managing Director/Founder of Artucation, an installation arts education business for children, and is the Indigenous Representative on the Regional Arts Development Fund Committee, Ipswich.  

In 2013 Alicia embarks on a Work In Residence with leading contemporary arts business Metro Arts with her work performing detention, continues to delve into the cross-cultural world of Death practices in And Death Becomes Her and is currently filming The Loves of Dom Perlimplin with Vanity Bros. (OZFRANK).
