Jill Price is an OCADU MFA IAMD candidate whose practice investigates the environmental realities of the Anthropocene.  Embracing that land serves as a museum for human behaviour, Price’s research argues that even the seen and unseen shadows of material “things” have agency upon our globally networked landscapes.  Utilizing both environmental data and narratives embedded within ready-made objects, Price presents drawings and sculptures that collectively examine social and ecological traumas woven into global economies.  These artworks are accompanied by a growing archive of hand-drawn shadows that document personal habits of consumption  acknowledging her position of privilege and the irony of her own production within this inquiry.

Conceptually exploring what constitutes a shadow, Price invites the audience to join her in asking what a “real” shadow might look like and how we all might go about drastically reducing shadows of production, exchange and disposal in the future. 

Jill Price is a recipient of the 2015 Ontario Graduate Scholarship, 2016 SSHRC Research Scholarship and the 2017 Michael Smith Foreign Study Supplement.
