About the work

Playing with an oil stick and taking inspiration from public conversations forming part of the Future Collect project with Manchester Art Gallery and Iniva, Everything That Is Said and Not Heard, Said and Unsaid speaks to communications and their obfuscations.

About the artist:

Jade Montserrat was Born 1981 London. Graduated from BA History of Art at Courtauld Institute of Art (2003); and MA Drawing at Norwich University of the Arts (2010).

Dancing her way through history and her story, marking the archive and letting it mark her, finding a voice within a chorus of opinions and reflecting projections of now and then, Montserrat’s work is a fracture in the linear narrative of consumption and a rigorous critique of the way cultural production scars bodies and constructs histories.

Her work exposes the perceptions of the Other as weighted responsibility in need of retort, skirting social activism by gesturally and texturally ascertaining new ground for politicized territories manifest through performance, film, installation, sculpture, print & text. This process is focused on the interrogation of materials, rearticulating them to expose gaps in both visual and linguistic habits.

Selected solo exhibitions include Constellations: Care and Resistance, Manchester Art Gallery as the first Future Collect artist (2020); Exhibition of works on paper, Iniva, London (2019-2020); Instituting Care, Humber Street Gallery, Hull (2019); and Instituting Care, Bluecoat, Liverpool (2019). Selected group shows include An Infinity of Traces, Lisson Gallery, London (2021); and The Last Place They Thought Of, ICA, Philadelphia (2018).

Selected residencies include Hospitalfield, Arbroath (2020-2021); and East Street Arts, Leeds (2020).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
