Jacqueline Taylor’s practice is multidisciplinary and includes film, performance, sound and photography. Humour and satire are utilized by Taylor to invite the viewer to engage in a political message, often putting herself in front of the lens to examine themes of neoliberalism, capitalism, and the role the artist plays within them. Taylor actively raises questions in regard to power, control, and the way in which our society operates.
Jacqueline Taylor is a visual artist living in London. She recently graduated from London College of Communication (LCC) with a Distinction in her MA in Fine Art Photography. At LCC, Taylor was awarded a year-long mentorship with Bridget Coaker at Troika Gallery. In the past year, she has exhibited at Threefold in Hangzhou (China), the Ugly Duck Gallery with the London Alternative Photography Collective, and with the Writing Photographs Collective at Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre. For the past two years Taylor has worked in collaboration with Ana Escobar, carrying out a year-long residency at PARC. At PARC, the two artists work alongside Professor Val Williams, curating various exhibitions including a retrospective on Val Williams personal archive on women’s photography titled ‘The Others Observers’.
Taylor currently works as the Course Leader for the BTEC Photography Programme at Barking and Dagenham.
