10582950_311037695743950_6597152307518874981_oJessica Frelund was born and raised in New Mexico, traveling to Minnesota for three months out of the year. She attended the University of Wisconsin – Madison, where she received a BFA in sculpture and painting in 2005. She spent the following seven years in California, making, traveling, and working as an Art Handler for the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the University Art Gallery at the University of California San Diego, and numerous other galleries and museums. She now lives and works in Bloomington, Indiana, while pursuing a Masters of Arts in Studio Art & Theory at Drury University, in Springfield, Missouri.

Working in sculpture, video, 2D, and collaboration, she explores her unrest with normative modes of behavior. Investigating the potential of the human organism, us, generative antagonism, and the work of replacing conventional and convenient models, she writes, “Where I modeled, I must now agitate. What I think about is what I am, and somewhere in the middle is what I does.”

Running her hands along the surface of contestable models, Jessica enacts strategies associated with amateurish ethnography and sociology.
