Performance with thermal camera. Looped split-screen video.

Jesse is an artist working with moving image, photography, text and sound. She is interested in the role of the scientific and the mythic in the cultural understanding of the gendered body. Her practice uses modes of embodied feminine knowledge to explore corporeality, often drawing on ritualised modes of making and oral history.Her current research focuses on the term milk fever, a folkloric diagnosis of post-natal depression from the 1950’s. It was thought that the milk stagnated in the body and fevered the brain, resulting in madness. Passed down on the tongue of her grandmother, milk fever evades physical documentation, which in turn speaks to women’s silenced histories.Jesse lives and works in London and studies Contemporary Art Practice at the Royal College of Art. Her work has been published in Dazed, Hunger, Sabat and Aesthetica, and has been exhibited at Moving Image Artists and SISSI Club, Marseille.Jesse is a part of Artemisia, an artists’ collective whose work intersects within mythology, ritual, healing and embodied feminine knowledge.
