Jessica Kelly (Dublin, 1982) is an artist who works primarily with moving image. Her work is usually screen-based and is informed by philosophies of technology, dance and spirit. Collaboration and discourse are frequent features of her practice, and she also uses text and performance. Present interests include the spectral image, commemoration and after-death existences.
Kelly graduated from Fine Art Media at the National College of Art & Design (Ireland) in 2007 and from 2009-10 was a resident artist of Daghdha Dance Company, Limerick. In 2011 she moved to Belgium and in 2014 completed her Masters in Fine Art Multimedia at KASK School of Arts, Ghent. She currently lives and works in rural Leitrim, in the west of Ireland.
