About Jade Blackstock

My performances focus on dialogues of the ‘marked’ body in relation to concerns of the political and cultural. In my practice, themes of race, femininity, loss and resistance tie together with explorations of spectacle, constructed identity and social commentary. I tend to use foods, condiments, various synthetic liquids and carriers such as bowls to create silent works that inhabit stillness – often in public outdoor spaces.
