Molly Palmer

In conversation with
Rebecca Jagoe

As part of the exhibition: Mechanism Of A Lock
This took place before the opening on 12/20/2019

The artists invited to realize a project at 1646 are asked to engage in conversation with a correspondent via email or DM, be it someone previously unknown to them or whom they’re already familiar with.

This conversation spans the period before an exhibition is completed. 1646 invites the correspondent at the other end of this exchange to ask questions so they may be guided through the artist’s decision-making process and how their initial ideas develop toward completion. It provides insight into the artist’s body of work and is intended to paint a picture of the otherwise untraceable choices that constitute the artist’s practice.


About Molly Palmer: Palmer (b. 1984, lives and works in London and Amsterdam) works within and between the media of filmmaking, installation, sculpture and choreography. Using hand made props, sets and costumes, she green screens protagonists into layered video worlds where music, gesture and dialogue form cyclical narratives exploring the strangeness concealed within ordinary things. Palmer finished her postgraduate diploma in Fine Art at the Royal Academy Schools, London, after a BA in Studio Practice and Contemporary Critical Studies at Goldsmiths, London. Currently, she is a resident at the Rijksakademie voor Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam, before which her residencies includes The Fountainhead Residency, Miami. Solo-shows include exhibitions at Ty Pawb, Wrexham, CCA, Glasgow, Enclave, London, the Istanbul Biennial, and group-shows include exhibitions at Kristian Day Gallery London, Tou Scene, Stavanger, Kala Art Institute, Berkeley. Palmer has been the recipient of the Agnes Ethel Mackay Prize and the Jerwood Visual Arts bursary, among others
