Jessica Houston


My multimedia projects elicit natureculture entanglements. I have worked with communities on questions of ecology, sustainability, and changing landscapes in the US, Iceland, Europe, the Canadian Arctic and Antarctica. With minimal means, I quietly advocate for a renewed sensitivity to our world's radical aliveness. I have created site-specific works for the New Jersey MOCA, Asbury Park, New Jersey; the Castello di Corigliano, Puglia, Italy; Governors Island, NY, NY; and The Albany Airport, Albany, NY. Select exhibitions include Art Mûr Gallery, Montréal, Canada; The Hyde Collection Museum, Glens Falls, NY; and The Latimer House Museum, New York, NY. Select residencies include The Albers Foundation in Bethany, CT; NES in Skagaströnd, Iceland; and the CAMAC Centre of Art, Science and Technology in France. My works are funded by The Canada Council for the Arts and are in the collections of La collection Prêt d’œuvres d’art, Musée National Des Beaux-Arts du Quebec; Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ), Montréal, Québec; Bank of Montréal, Toronto; and the Consulate General of Monaco, Montréal.
