ARTIST IN FOCUS
Jo Kitchen b. 1996 lives and works in London. Kitchen graduated from Central Saint Martins with a degree in Fine Art. Blurring the lines between reality and fiction, Jo Kitchen’s work flirts with the romance of the re- appropriated memory. Kitchen’s work romanticises the haze of her own biographical experiences with that of her hyper-idealised hindsight. Her subject is sometimes reminiscent of an object-come-memory, rooted at first in the mundanity of the everyday; through emotional association, the artist elevates her subjects into objects of existential fiction – props in a narrative Kitchen is constantly re-writing.
