Jessye Wdowin-McGregor

Associate Artist Residency

Jessye Wdowin-McGregor is an artist based in Melbourne, Australia, whose creative practice incorporates the moving image, performance, photography and collage. Jessye’s work explores the relationships between human and more-than-human lives, the invisible forces and elemental infrastructures that shape the urban environment, and ideas around contingency, particularly in relation to how we see and interpret images.

Jessye completed a Master of Fine Art by Research (2008) at the Victorian College of the Arts and a Master of Cultural Material Conservation (2014) at the University of Melbourne. Jessye has exhibited in a variety of spaces including with Daine Singer, Melbourne (2019), Rubicon ARI, Melbourne (2019); Melbourne's Living Museum of the West, Maribyrnong (2018); Testing Grounds, Melbourne (2018); and Photodust, curated online feature (2016). The artist acknowledges the Kulin Nations as the sovereign custodians of the land where she lives, works, and makes. She pays respects to their Elders, past and present, and to all First Nations people.

Associate Artist Residency

Acme's Associate Artist Residency allows artists to apply directly to Acme for shorter-term (up to three months) residency opportunities. These residencies are selected directly by Acme and tailored to suit the development and networking needs of international artists, allowing them to engage in research, develop relationships and focus on their work in a supported environment.

This residency was supported in part by the Copyright Agency.
