About Jordanna Greaves

Through sociality, play and her own system of semiotics, Jordanna explores the oscillation between the discombobulation and pain of living in a neo-liberal spectacle; the attraction towards it and the craving for other possible futures which theorist and media activist, Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi hypotheses are already in our present, but which we are yet to uncover.  Her ideas manifest through reiteration and obsession to create mixed and multi-media experiences, painting, drawing, conceptual installations and performance.

Jordanna's practice also plays out as co-founder of the creative space Grow in Hackney Wick, where local artists and musicians collaborate on experiences motivated by the good of everyone, not for profit, in order to generate conditions for creativity, authenticity, belonging and a balanced power dynamic.
