b. 1977 Sydney/Gadagal Land, Australia. Lives and works London, UK.

With a practice that spans sculpture, site-responsive works, video, and drawing, Australian-born / UK-based artist Susan Jacobs adopts poetic narratives to examine the intersection between language and matter.

Her objects cunningly blur the boundaries of science, art, and the mysteries of existence into a rhizomatic sculptural tapestry. Her works, often developed over years of experimentation, invite viewers into a realm of visual riddles, playful allusions to science, psychology, mythology, and a rich tapestry of word games.

Jacobs’s ‘Sculptural Syntax’, as she describes it, emerges through the coalescence of objects that articulate themselves in a way reminiscent of a carefully-crafted sentence.

Jacobs has exhibited extensively both in Australia and Internationally including at the 32nd São Paulo Bienal, NEW10 The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne Now, The National Gallery of Victoria, The 7th Asia Pacific Triennial, QAGOMA and the 12th Adelaide Biennale of Australian Art.
