jake moore

jake moore is an intermedia artist, exhibition maker and academic currently engaged in PhD studies under the supervision of Christine Ross. She works at the intersections of material, text, and vocality. She considers her primary medium to be space, its production, and its occupation through writing and many other actions. She holds a diploma in furniture design and construction from the School of Crafts and Design, Sheridan College, a BFA in Sculpture and an MFA in Fibres and Material Practices both from Concordia University where she was a McConnell Fellow. Her graduate work in interactive textiles and sound installation; Transceptive Schematics, was supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

She is currently investigating art and spatial politics through vocality and its material resonance in the work of Rebecca Belmore, Susan Philipsz, Sharon Hayes, and Irena Haiduk in her project, Viscous Air and Surface Tensions supported through the Fonds de recherche Societé et culture. She proposes a recuperated listening, disentangled from the ear, as a research methodology.

She has exhibited nationally, worked as both a curator and in gallery direction, and her written work has been published in .dpi, Poolside, Critical Distance, C Magazine, ESSE, Canadian Art, (among others) as well as in numerous exhibition catalogues, most recently for Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau, this is the sound that bird makes. She is presently co-editing a book, L’agir en condition hyperconnectée. Art et images à l’œuvre, an extension of the symposium of the same name produced through the intrauniversity research group Médiatopias and to be released by Les Presses de l’Université de Montréal in 2019.

Alongside SSHRC and FRQSC, her work has received the support of Media@McGill, Centre interuniversitaire en arts médiatiques, Hexagram, Ontario Crafts Council, Manitoba Arts Council, and Canada Council for the Arts, most recently for her curatorial project, Topographies of Listening.
