Jessie Brennan is daughter of the late Jacky and Frank Brennan, parent (with her partner George) to Reuben, and an artist based between London and Devon. Her art practice explores the inter- relations between people and places, informed by their social and political contexts and a direct engagement with the individuals who occupy them. She explores ethnography and drawing (in the expanded field) as critical methodologies for revealing urban social and spatial injustices. Such methods are intended towards their productive political use in the form of exhibitions, publications and large-scale installations in the public realm. This has led her to become involved in projects, for example, with people in public housing estates and community gardens. Her books include Regeneration! (2015) and Re: development (2016).
