jazmine deng (she/they) is a multi media artist who resides on unceded kaurna yerta. she graduated with a bachelor of visual art from adelaide central school of art (2021).
her practice is an interrogation based upon Henri Lefebvre’s discussion between the relationship of the real, the possible and the impossible. by exploring the possible, one rejects the presumed inevitability of power and the current mode of production (Henri Lefebvre, 1991).
sociology, psychology and metaphysical narratives inform the framework of her artistic discourse. she confronts the materially made spaces, excess and ideals of the 21st century as a parallel to uncover (a) who we are and (b) what we can do now.
a priority on truth telling and demystification of self is important for her, in order to rationalize the nature and design of our current world system. to confront the everyday and draw connections from seemingly contradicting fields of research, she attempts to emphasize a shared humanity, and challenge the ideology of what makes up our reality, often presented to us through capitalism, mass media and a Eurocentric dominated world view.
as opposed to creating anything new, jazmine is more concerned about how art is a representation of how we would like to live - prefiguratively building the worlds we desire (Emily Nicolosi, 2020).
jazmine's materials are her own intentions, and are not tied to a particular category. she likes to embrace the notion that everything matters and inevitably the outcomes created are often colourful, expressive and loaded.
they work across video, installation, performance, comedy, writing and a lil painting and drawing. still thinking. still mulling over a lot. lots of different practices in one, as one. this site lives as an open archive... ٩(⌯꒦ິ̆ᵔ꒦ິ)۶ᵒᵐᵍᵎᵎᵎ
