Swiss-born artist Jessica Faiss, born 1973, graduated from the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm in 2002. She has exhibited in various venues in Sweden and internationally. She lives in Stockholm.
Jessica Faisshas chosen the seemingly static video loop as her working material. She startswith footage of continuous states, repeated actions, monotonous sequences. Hersubject-matter sometimes forms a natural temporal and visual loop already onthis initial level of observation. She may shoot from inside a driverlesscommuter train (Odaiba, 2004) or record an eventless car ride through asplattered windshield (Desert, 2001). Her videos may also be predicated onman-made objects, but in their finished state it is no longer possible to tellwhether these are inanimate or animate (Boots, 2002; Runway, 2002). Shereformulates the 'empty time' we may experience as we perform necessary buttransitory routines. She articulates our longing for 'simplified imagery'. Sheputs her own visuals through a process of intuitive and precise editing thatcharges them with invisible speculation. We are not surprised to hear thatJessica Faiss has come to video through painting.
