Jemima de Jonge

Visual artist and filmmaker


Jemima de Jonge - portrait -

Jemima de Jonge (*2001) grew up in Rotterdam. She graduated with distinction in June 2023 at the KABK (Royal Academy of Visual Arts) in The Hague.

Jemima uses film to merge drawings, sculptures, installations and performances into one gesture, like a true multidisciplinary child of her time.

From an early age, Jemima has used drawings to visualise her thoughts and ideas. In them, an (inner) grownup sense of tragedy and tension collide with sometimes childish solutions. She plays with contrasts between rough sketches and clear detailing.

Jemima uses her awareness of her surroundings to manipulate spaces. She defines the edge between the real and the imagined. On this boundary, the viewer is drawn into her work via a mixture of media and routes. They create slightly alienating experiences and stories with an idiosyncratic sense of humour, in which the loner is often central.
