About Jennifer's work

Jennifer Bailey’s work is about the self-representation of the individual by way of lifestyle choices and an investigation into the visual codes that constitute authenticity. Bailey’s practice often involves her family. Their inclusion is related to wider interests including the ‘performance’ of social class and attitudes to paid work, food and childrearing. Her work involves writing, publishing projects, exhibition making, photography and sculpture.
