Jessica Serran
Canadian artist, guide and psycho-cartographer whose work is a blend of text, imagery and social practice that together examine the relationship between personal and collective experience and the subtexts that define our experience of Self and Other. Her work relies on the notion that the art object can play a profound role in discovering, reconnecting and examining our sense of both our public and private selves. Her work has been exhibited in Canada, the United States and Europe.
