Project Arts Centre Presents

Tremble Tremble by Jesse Jones

Dates: 07 Jun - 21 Jul

 

Free admission Mon – Sat from 11am

Tremble Tremble will transform the Space Upstairs into a multi-media installation which re-imagines feminist history and law. Jesse Jones has created an artwork she describes as a “bewitching” of the judicial system.

The title is inspired by the 1970s Italian wages for housework movement, during which women chanted “Tremate, tremate, le streghe sono tornate! (Tremble, tremble, the witches have returned!)”. Jones’ new work emerges from the rising social movement in Ireland which calls for a transformation of the historic relationship between the church and the state.

In this time of change, Jesse Jones returns to the witch as a feminist archetype and disrupter who has the potential to transform reality. Tremble Tremble imagines a different legal order, one in which the multitude are bought together in a symbolic, gigantic body, to proclaim a new law, that of In Utera Gigantae.

Based in Dublin, Jones has been researching the ways in which the law transmits memory between generations and over time. Her research weaves between an archeological dig of a 3.5 million year old female specimen, to the suppressed voices of the witch trials of the 16th century Europe, the symphysiotomy trials, and abortion legislation in Ireland today.

A book, published in English and Italian, features the writing of Silvia Federici, Tina Kinsella, Lisa Godson, and Tessa Giblin. Designed by Åbäke, with photography by Ros Kavanagh, Tremble Tremble / Tremate Tremate is co-published by Mousse Publishing and Project Arts Centre and is now available to purchase from the Bookshop at Project Arts Centre.
