About Jeremy Bailey:
Throughout his career, the Toronto born artist Jeremy Bailey has explored software in a performative context. As Rhizome author Morgan Quaintance has written "Since the early noughties Bailey has ploughed a compelling, and often hilarious, road through the various developments of digital communications technologies. Ostensibly a satire on, and parody of, the practices and language of "new media," the jocose surface of Bailey’s work hides an incisive exploration of the critical intersection between video, computing, performance, and the body."
Specifically, Bailey’s works consist of all manner of performances that exist as videos, software, websites, inventions, institutions and ephemera all created and presented by his alter ego, Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey.
Bailey studied at the University of Toronto from 1998 to 2002 and completed his Masters in Fine Art from Syracuse University in 2006. He has participated in residencies at the Banff Centre in Alberta Canada, FACT in Liverpool UK, and Quartier 21 in Vienna Austria and has been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions internationally.
