Jo Hooper

Artist Statement

My work explores place, domesticity and the lure of the wild outdoors. Often revolving around an absent female protagonist and her dresses and belongings, I explore my embodied postmemory of a nomadic and simpler life. Ideas of shelter, home, trace, and my own family history weave themselves in and out of my practice. As does the pain of our  lost connection with the natural world.
