Jessica Lynn Wiebe

Interdisciplinary artist Jessica Lynn Wiebe (she/her) is a former artillery soldier in the Canadian military whose body of work centres on reflections of militarism, military life, memory and commemoration. Her interdisciplinary approach investigates the mechanisms of war, including the complex politics around gender, economy, architecture of war, and the human condition. By engaging and challenging deeply-held beliefs and emotions about the military and war, her work generates dialogue among members of the public, government, and those who serve. Most recently, Wiebe’s focus on the human condition has been evolving as she develops work centred on the environment and the physical body through photography and video. Jessica was born and raised in Brandon, MB on Treaty 2 territory and currently practices in K’jipuktuk/Halifax, NS.

I am an interdisciplinary artist.. though I have always gravitated towards photography. I have carried a camera everywhere I go for as long as I can remember, always needing to document the subtle nuances of my environment and the people who are close to me. 

 

When I am not in the studio you can find me hiking, exploring, and swimming around Nova Scotia year round. You will also find me teaching yoga and kickboxing. I have chosen to share my art practice on my Website, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts while using my Instagram account as a place to share my outdoor adventures, cold water immersion, movement, environmental photography, and self portraiture. 

 

I have embedded my Instagram page below to share my world outside of my art practice!
