Alison Jackson

Alison Jackson is a contemporary, BAFTA award artist who explores the cult of celebrity – an extraordinary phenomenon created by the media,  publicity industries and the public figures themselves.  Her work sits squarely in the middle of the current fake news, alternative facts or news debates. Jackson makes convincingly realistic work about celebrities doing things in private using cleverly styled lookalikes.

Jackson’s photographs raise questions about whether we can believe what we see when we live in a mediated world of screens, imagery and internet. She comments on our voyeurism, on the power and seductive nature of imagery, and on our need to believe. Her work has established wide respect for her as an incisive, funny and thought-provoking commentator on the burgeoning phenomenon of contemporary celebrity culture.

“My pictures ask where does the truth end and the lies begin…where the subjective triumphs over the objective.”

Jackson’s work has been widely exhibited in museums, galleries and in public collections across the world, including Pompidou Centre, La Louvre, The Frances Foundation, Paris; Tate Modern, The Tate Britain, The Hayward Gallery, The National Portrait Gallery, London; Liverpool Biennial; San Francisco MoMA; Musée de L’Elysee, Lausanne; International Center of Photography, New York, among many others. Jackson’s artwork has additionally been featured in The Times, Vanity Fair, The Guardian, Artnet as well as countless magazines and newspapers globally.

Her work was featured at “MENTAL IMAGES x ALISON JACKSON” at SPRING/BREAK ART SHOW 2019 A Solo Exhibition Curated by Indira Cesarine, as well as ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE group show at The Untitled Space, among others.
