Born in Cambridge, 1988. Lives and works in Monmouth, Wales.
Rebecca Jagoe describes themself as a queer, crip, neurodiverse artist, and a non binary femme. Their work is a material memoir which examines how their own experiences of illness and gender, how their identity itself, is informed by specific Western cultural narratives. They explore how within European culture, the Feminine is constructed at the meeting point of medical rhetoric and the aesthetics of mainstream fashion. Rebecca is an Irish artist who has lived in England for most of their life, and last year they permanently moved out of London to South Wales.
Rebecca has performed widely, including recent projects such ‘As if.’ at the CCA Gallery, Goldsmiths, London; Florilege, a collaborative project, exhibition and performance with Nils Alix Tabeling, at Jupiter Woods and Overnight Relief, Kelder Projects, London, in 2019.
