jake moore is an intermedia artist whose primary medium is space. She works at the intersection of material, gesture, text, and vocality to make exhibitions, events and other kinds of interventions public. Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, she gained early art and life experience as the singer in the all-female punk rock band, The Ruggedy Annes; sonic potential has informed her practice ever since. Her investment in social and cultural practices has lead to positions in organizations as varied in size and intention as MAWA (Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art) in Winnipeg, Studio XX in Montréal, and the FOFA Gallery at Concordia University with active feminist and decolonizing intentions. She is currently a PhD Candidate in Art History and Communication Studies at McGill University. She has exhibited nationally, highlights include The Walter Philips Gallery and La Triennale québécoise 2011. While moore considers her primary medium to be space and its occupation, this idea expands the understanding of her artistic practice to include her administrative projects and other acts of building capacity as a sculptural method, one of changing the form and volume of public spaces.
