Jill Magid

Jill Magid (1972)


1972, United States, lives/works in Amsterdam. The work of the American artist Jill Magid is riddled with double meanings. She transgresses the boundaries of observation, becomes a voyeur and turns us into voyeurs as well. In the era of surveillance cameras, seeing and being seen has become commonplace and is one of Magid’s favourite tools. Her work was shown at the Liverpool Biennial in 2004 and in 2003 in Film@33, TURF, Brooklyn, New York and Tall Tale Small Scale, Galerie Van Gelder, Amsterdam (solo).
