JESSICA VOORSANGER



Jessica Voorsanger's work explores the concept of 'celebrity' within popular culture; through obsession, fans and media representation. It deals specifically with the relationship between celebrities and their 'fans', and the ideology of fan culture. She attempts to capture the inaccessibility of celebrities by confronting a fan’s excitement and eternal love, with the improbability of them meeting their idol.

For Tainted Love Voorsanger has created an installation of paintings and costumes that detail Andy Warhol, Abraham Lincoln and John Lennon - all people who were shot by obsessive fanatics.

 

Jessica Voorsanger is an American artist living in London. She Studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and Goldsmiths College and has had one-person exhibitions in London, New York, Edinburgh, Berlin & Turin. Recently exhibitions have been at Gallerie 33, Berlin; The ICA; Whitechapel Art Gallery and a project for Art on the Underground.
