Description

Because of the time scale and the textual nature of the work, Of Course She Jumped required a long period of research and preparation. This involved seeking out and studying historical and litearary texts on the subject of ‘independence’ (the American Declaration of Independence was written out in full on the wall). I also went through a lengthy process of soliciting anecdotes and texts considering the theme from selected artists, writers, philosophers and academics. The title of the piece came from one such contribution, an anecdote about Simone De Beauvoir being once faced with a choice between a long, safe walk around a ravine or a quick, dangerous jump across it.
