"Jarvis embarks on a quest to reconnect with a sense of place and redefine the concept of home through her compelling visual art. Delving into the interplay of solitude, nostalgia, and self-connection, Everywhere You Go, There You Are shines a light on an often overlooked aspect of Jarvis’ evolving career. This new body of work diverges from the emotional portraiture she is renowned for, encompassing medium and large format photographs —significantly marking her expansion into painted textiles and collages, which are a nod to the innocence of youth. Through these mediums, Jarvis explores the essence of childlike wonder and creativity, adding depth and layers to her story of place and identity.
'I am making images that people may not want to see from me, which I often see as part of my own identity politics. When I step back and look at what my memory allowed me to forget, I see that no matter where you go, there you are. These beautiful yet banal moments serve as reminders to pay attention, to be present, and to create deliberately.' shares Shaniqwa Jarvis." - Control Gallery
