Tremble, Tremble / The Tower, Jesse Jones

Tax included.

This richly illustrated catalogue celebrates two genre-defying artworks by Jesse Jones Tremble Tremble and The Tower.

Includes contributions from feminist activist and writer Silvia Federici, curators Tessa Giblin and Tara Londi, leading Irish academics Tina Kinsella and Lisa Godson, actress and poet Naomi Moonveld-Nkosi, and acclaimed choreographers Junk Ensemble. Exquisitely designed by leading British graphic designers Michael Kelly and Fraser Muggeridge at Fraser Muggeridge Studio.

Using a form of expanded cinema artist Jesse Jones explores magical counter-narratives to the state, drawn from suppressed archetypes and myth. This is the first book dedicated to two seminal works by Jones: Tremble Tremble which she presented in the Irish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2017 and subsequently toured globally; and The Tower which was commissioned by Rua Red in Dublin as part of The Magdalene Series. Jones’ research is grounded in the history of female mystical thought as a site of autonomy and resistance. She trusts in the potential of art to ignite our collective imaginary and agitate for change against the centuries of capital accumulation that has impacted upon women’s freedoms. It is also the story about Jones’ motivation as an artist and the extraordinary sea of political and cultural change that has engulfed Ireland over the past decade.

This book was published on the occasion of Jesse Jones’ exhibition The Tower at Talbot Rice Gallery.
