Caroline AreskogJones' developing ecology of practice is research led, rhizomatic and focused on our contemporary human interaction of being in the non-human world. With a particular concern for the evolving environmental crisis and how to contribute to the wider conversation, her work weaves together multiple threads of reference exploring altered states of impermanence and mutability, adapting to negotiate what she describes as a 'perforated space', an intertidal zone, a place of ambiguity hard to pin down.
Each project, like geological strata is packed with layers of investigation, experimentation and research under its surface. A speculative body of work develops through physical practices including print , moving image and drawing. Using archival strategies the work slowly evolves responding to its wider environment when sited. Each component exists autonomously or as part of its own community, which may grow or mutate over time.
After gaining a BA(1st class)Hons Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and MA (Print) from The Royal College of Art, opportunities to grow a practice continue, including exhibitions, residencies, artist talks and writing.
Caroline has a background in both contemporary dance and physical therapy, and this intimate knowledge of the interconnectedness between body and mind are equally important to her practice. Based in London an inherent Scandinavian sensibility and connection to the land provides a vital balance.
