Jo Clements’ work wrestles with common anxieties around incompleteness of knowledge, experience and achievements. Centred on the futile search for certainty of understanding and perceived hierarchies of knowledge, her humorous, reimaginings and reappropriations playfully explore the complex relationship between putative information and experiential understanding through sculpture, film and installation.

Frequently sensual and often tongue in cheek the work exudes an ambiguous mix of the serious and the absurd. 

Jo was overall winner of the GM arts prize 2018.

She has a fine art, practice based PhD, lectured for many years at the University of Salford, and was previously the Educational Director of Artists and Education CIC. As well as her arts practice Clements also works nationally to support artists and arts professionals through specialist coaching. For information about Jo’s coaching practice click HERE
