Artist stop Jessica Lynn Wiebe
Jessica Lynn Wiebe is from Brandon, Manitoba currently living and working in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She graduated with her BFA from NSCAD University in 2015, and with her BEd from Acadia University in 2016. Jessica’s work responds to her time in the military as a soldier, and educator. She employs storytelling and performance in a multi-disciplinary practice. Thematically, Jessica’s work critically examines and deconstructs powerful experiences through disparate connections to specific objects and place. Her work questions how identity is shaped by experience and how this connects her in a local and global context. Jessica is currently an Artist in Residence at the MacPhee Centre for Creative Learning in Dartmouth, NS. 6
The Space Between This work investigates the physical experience of war that monuments represent. It is about linking a new generation of soldiers and their experience of war with former generations. The trench around the war memorial protects memory, as all monuments become invisible in our everyday landscape.
