Biography

Jemima Lucas

Jemima Lucas is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Naarm, whose broad practice intersects conceptual and spatial modalities of research, contemporary sculpture, assemblage and performance. Her work penetrates and dilates discourses around relativity, autonomy and material/immaterial bodies. Assemblages hold allegorical potential, situating the works as active conduits for the body. Through balanced expressions of perpetration and yield, antithetical forces negotiate their impact on one another. Lucas completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Monash University, before undertaking an Honours of Fine Art at VCA. Her work has been exhibited and published locally and internationally. With materials enacting the primary point of departure in her practice; she would like to acknowledge the First Nations people on the lands from which they are sourced. The gravity of which is felt when mixing sand into a cement, mixing scoria to invest, welding steel, pouring latex and casting aluminium. All are mined from unceded Indigenous land.
