Artist Statement/ Biography

Jacqui’s interest in the politicization of time takes form through poetic exploration of repetition, narrative, delegation and physical activity. Working in video, photography, performance, and writing, her work seeks to establish a relationship with the temporalities of communication, labour and repetition. Her current research focuses on post-work politics, laziness, and practices of alternative temporal relations to our current understanding of work from a western perspective.


Jacqui Shelton is a visual artist based in Melbourne, Australia. She has shown extensively in both solo and group shows throughout Australia, and in Italy, New York, and Berlin. She recently completed a residency at the NARS Foundation in New York and is currently undertaking her MFA at Monash University, Melbourne.
