JAMIE ROSS (1987, Canada) is a visual artist, filmmaker, city gardener, and educator. In recent films, Radical Faerie elders help young people memorize the chants sung in 20th-century Queer street battles with the police; Pagan men incarcerated in Canadian federal prisons regale their chaplain with stories of intimate encounters with the divine, and in another, the portrait of a sheep farm run by witches on a remote hill in the Appalachians is centered on the flow of autumnal viscera and liquids.
Jamie’s video works have been screened and installed in exhibitions in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, England, France, Haiti, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Sweden, the United States, and throughout Canada. Recent work was presented at the Plug In ICA (Winnipeg, Canada), Lugar a Dudas (Cali, Colombia), and the Momenta Biennale (Montréal, Québec). Ross has been awarded grants and prizes from the Canada Council for the Arts, Les offices jeunesse internationaux du Québec, the Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec, and a Fulbright Scholarship.
