Jill Magid

Artworks

    • Jill Magid is a conceptual artist specialising in the infiltration of control organs and power systems. Her performance-based practice centres on the frontier between art and life, and underscores the absurdity of our relationship to institutions. Her works put into light the relationships between intimacy and power; the existential condition of the individual in the public sphere; and the emotional, philosophic, and juridical tensions that link us to institutional power. Magid stages relations based on the dynamics of seduction with various organizations, such as the army, the police, or the secret services. Her work reveals the intense emotional charges generated by these relations between individuals and structures of authority.
