Candice Jacobs is an artist & Lecturer currently based in London, UK.  

Using her practice as an autobiographical exploration of what affects the development of our individual and collective consciousness, she creates works that investigate how our sense of Self is shaped by the cognitive immaterialisation of production.

Although Jacobs will often place herself within her work through the use of her voice; her body; her thoughts via Twitter; her personal connection to the world via Social, Astrological or Spiritual translations; or the choice of materials used in the creation of her sculptural, architectural and social interventions; it is the audience that becomes the main protagonist for the work, whereby without the viewer there is no activation or space for reflection.  

Recently, she took part in Worlds Among Us, a commissioning project run by Wysing Arts Centre, FACT, QUAD and the Mechatronic Library, to develop 'Sweet Talk: The Vernal Equinox', a solo exhibition & virtual reality environment that links Hakim Bey's concept of the Temporary Autonomous Zone with habitual behaviour, spiritual practice and new forms of collective self care.

'Sweet Talk' is a cumulative artwork and research tool that she created with support from Near Now in Nottingham in 2016, to become a support structure and collective care strategy representing her research and personal development via exhibitions, events, a website and a collective self portrait.

In 2016 she was a member of The Eternal Internet Brother & Sisterhood in Sri Lanka, a project by Greek artist Angelo Plessas. Here she made a series of site specific audio and performance based works that explored meditation, astrology and transcendence. Plessas then went on to show an iteration of this project during the recent Documenta festival in Athens and Kassel.

During Nov/Dec 2018 Jacobs have been invited to visit the Srishti Institute of Art, Design & Technology in Bangalore, India (dubbed “the Silicon Valley of Asia”) by Italian Curator Marialaura Ghidini.

Jacobs is also the co-founder of One Thoresby Street (www.onethoresbystreet.org) a collective of artists, art spaces and studios; a co-founder of Moot (www.mootgallery,org) and more recently a member of the Near Now Studio (www.nearnow.org.uk).
