MEDIA HOMES artist residency. 2. Jil Gieleßen
The second selected artist was German Jil Gieleßen with her audiovisual project about Instagram aesthetic categories.
Her residency took place from the 8th of February to the 1st of March 2021 on our Instagram account. Her original creations are available in our Vimeo account too.
Jil published four videos – an introduction, « The Zany », « The Cute » and « The Interesting » – based on Sianne Ngai’s research about aesthetic categories and made editing content found on her Instagram feed with a voice over.
Here is a short interview about her work that we did during her virtual residency via email.
