Melania Jack


Melania Jack is a queer, non-binary, feminist artist working within digital art, projection, electronic music and performance mediums. Melania’s practice uses digital collage and ‘vidding’; video editing of archival and filmed materials, projection mapped onto domestic object sculptures to explore socialisation, gender, race and class issues connected to unpaid and low paid domestic labour.

The work examines these issues through a glitch feminist lens, using the glitch aesthetic within the work to represent a disruption of the image to reveal the unseen work, and other realities beneath the surface image.
