Jessica MacCormack Artel Residency Video

Jessica MacCormack was Modern Fuel's Artel-sponsored resident artist in August 2007. An artist working in performance, installation and video, Jessica MacCormack resided at the Artel and worked collaboratively with the Kingston community for a concurrent exhibition in the Artel Gallery.

One of the issues her residency/exhibition addressed was the controversial decision to close the Isabel McNeill House, the only minimum security facility in Canada for federally sentenced women. During her 3 week stay, MacCormack worked with women from Kingston’s Isabel MacNeil House on a project that has resulted in the creation of the animated video featured below.
