Daisy Jones is an artist, filmmaker & writer from London. Since graduating with a BA in Fine Art Photography at Arts University Bournemouth she took part in SLG film school, a radical film programme with guest tutors including Blitz the Ambassador & Mica Levi. Her film works have since been screened at Roundhouse, South London Gallery & Wexner Center for the Arts Ohio.
Visual and narrative storytelling are central to her practice, she often employs deadpan humour as a tool to uncover home truths within her work. While she has often used her own gaze to approach societal injustices she is also concerned with the broader aesthetics of blackness, particularly when they become untethered from Black people.
In 2021 she was awarded a Grand Plan artist grant for creatives of colour where she was able to develop her research on the home as a space for exploring the effects of creolisation, inspired by Michael McMillan’s installation titled The Front Room.
During her Masters in CAP she has continued to expand her practice to include performance, sculpture & installation. She plans to continue to make work that focuses on the Caribbean diaspora, the theory of the other & blackness in all of its myriad forms.
