Jessy Jetpack’s (b. 1987, Dubai) work is poignant, provocative and engaging, with a dark sense of humour that cuts deep. Working across many medias, including 3D print, video and virtual reality. The work deals with themes as big as meta-physics to the smallest human micro-emotion. Consistently challenging and forward thinking, Jetpack’s parodies of popular/internet culture and the modern relationships forged within it are always accessible and always evocative.

New site-specific works responding to a Grade-B listed industrial space in Glasgow’s historic Barras region. CHUMMING is interested in the culture a space inhabits and the group show as a model for artists to cross over, further exploring new levels of discourse and engagement, both in and out of the gallery.
The exhibition sparks a relationship between the artists, audience and place, while accompanying events include unique happenings with local musicians and filmmakers, informed by open source action and exchange.
Supported by Glasgow International and the Royal Academy of Art.
