Jessica Segall is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York City. Using landscape and bureaucracy as material, she explores belonging through inter-species, site-specific work. From the Global Seed Vault in the high arctic to private wildlife reserves that allow individual ownership of large predators, Jessica’s work plays with both the risk of engaging with the environment and the vulnerability of the environment itself. Jessica’s process is a cross-disciplinary collaboration with scientists, activists and non-human beings in what she frames as a queer ecology. Her work is exhibited internationally, and she has been supported by international residencies and grants.
