Jo Matthews

Name: Jo Matthews

Joanne (JoJo) Matthews is an artist, producer, researcher, and labourer. Her practice is embedded in long-term research and fieldwork.

Currently she is interested in researching and developing a body of work concerned with fear and isolation within society. She’s experimenting with using punk energy and imagining the rugged British landscape as a sounding board, as a backdrop and as a knowledge base. Her work is concerned with the complex systems we live by and often how these connect to nature.

Throughout her career, Jo has focussed on working directly with art and non-art audiences, through producing, audience development, activism and working and living in small farming and permaculture communities.
