Jemima Burrill

Jemima Burrill is an artist, and filmmaker. Through a variety of media, Burrill’s work aims to reveal predisposed boundaries of the domestic space, elevating the mundane into the significant. With a self-reflective intention, Jemima Burrill describes her constant preoccupation with inappropriate behaviour, sometimes humorous, sometimes disturbing; always trying to push the boundaries of her environments using a solitary protagonist. Her videos have been shown internationally including at the Museum of Modern Art in Lyon, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, Arts Santa Monica, Barcelona; Florence Lynch Gallery, New York; and in various shows with the Pacific Design Centre, LA and her performances have infiltrated the Barbican, Ace Hotel, the Freud Museum, and Up Project’s Floating Cinema. What connects her visually disparate work is a meticulous study of human relationships, especially women's ability to create their own worlds. She is represented by Galerie Houg, Paris, and has had four solo shows in Paris and Lyon.
