Jessica Williams - Atelie

Jessica Williams

b. 1986, Anchorage (US/NO)

Jessica Williams is an artist based on Jeløya who works freely within the realms of publishing, photography, text, and new media. Through tragicomedy, language, and aesthetic assemblages, her work tackles personal and political themes such as identity and our relationship with nature, consumption, and technology. Ultimately, her work aims to give form to that which we do not or cannot see. Williams was educated at the National Academy of Art in Oslo, Malmö Art Academy, and The Cooper Union in New York City. Her working methods are like those of a hunter/ gatherer, which is a nice way of saying she often works with trash. Everything from institutional language, mass-produced consumer goods, internet scraps, and physical debris finds its way into her work. She is also an avid collaborator, often involving others in her works. Between 2011-2014, she was the driving force behind the small press North, South, East, West (NSEW). Since 2012, she has regularly given talks and held workshops on self-publishing and risograph printing. In 2016, she started producing printed works under the moniker Hverdag Books. In 2018, she co-founded Norsk Risoforening. / Works can be picked up in Moss or in Oslo on certain days. Prices do not include shipping, but a flat rate of 80kr (Helthjem) can be arranged within Norway for the majority of the work here.
