Jesse Jones @ Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh

24 June 2023 - 30 September 2023

Jesse Jones’ new film, performance and sculptural installation, The Tower, is the second part in a trilogy beginning with Tremble.    The Tower finds its beginning point not in the witch but the heretic; it conjures the words of women burned as heretics before the first witch trials in the sixteenth century.

Jones’ work delves into the lost knowledge of women’s ecstatic visions through the writing and song of medieval female Christian mystics, and evokes the strange, isolated imaginaries of anchorites and hermits along with troubling histories of religious and state incarceration of women.
