"...a small, but potent reminder that change is possible: what is imagined in art can eventually become law, and what is law can eventually become history" Sunday Business Post
"...the persistence of the feminine as a parallel, subversive reality – embodied in the witch, demonised, hounded and suppressed." Irish Times
“…artist Jesse Jones has pulled off a triumph. Tremble, Tremble is a Pandora’s box of a film installation which unleashes a stagey, supernatural yet utterly compelling witch on the audience.” Moira Jeffrey, The Scotsman

Talks and Readings
Dates: 12 Jul - 12 Jul
Show Time: 8pm
Please join us for a very special artist talk, Jesse Jones in conversation with Dr Tina Kinsella and Dr Lisa Godson where they will discuss the theories behind Tremble Tremble, the wider political impacts of the work, and art practice in a feminist context.
Jesse Jones threw a spotlight on feminism and women’s issues with her work Tremble Tremble when she represented Ireland at the 57th Venice Biennale / La Biennale di Venezia in 2017. Since then the political landscape has changed dramatically, with calls for change echoing around the world. In the wake of #MeToo, #IBelieveHer, revelations about the gender pay gap, and in the year that that saw Irish citizens go to the polls for an historic referendum vote, Jesse Jones has returned to Dublin with the Irish premiere of this timely work. Jones has transformed Project’s Space Upstairs into a multi-media installation which re-imagines feminist history and law, presenting an artwork she describes as a “bewitching” of the judicial system.
Admission to the artist talk is free but ticketed.
