Jade Montserrat’s research-led practice excavates shared histories alongside delving into her personal narrative. Montserrat works at the intersection of art and activism through painting, performance, film, sculpture, installation, print and text; she interrogates these mediums with the aim to expose gaps in our visual and linguistic habits.
Jade’s residency with Alchemy Film & Arts culminates at the twelfth edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival with a keynote Ritual Passage: Memories for Frederick Douglass and Thomas Jenkins – a new exhibition and educational resource for young people and community groups exploring Hawick’s underknown Black histories.
