Jade Miners

Part of the New Light Prize Exhibition 2020

Jade Miners was born in Norfolk and is currently studying a Fine Art PhD at the Institute of the Arts, Carlisle. Through an interdisciplinary art practice, Miners investigates the ethical complications presented as a result of human influences over animals and the environments in which they reside. By exploring the ethical dimensions of using animals representationally and as a material, Miners speculates whether this can (or ever will) be achieved in a way that is determined as ethically safe. In shifting our political realities into uncomfortable focus, artists function on the periphery of social acceptance and aspire a means for proposing effective spurs for change - a concept Miners hopes to encourage and contribute towards.
