Jonah King was born in 1985 in Ireland. His video installations explore the power of digital media over our relationship to land. His work weaves fictional and true accounts through constellations of moving images generated in the studio, with actors, or in collaboration with community groups. By invoking speculative narratives of envisioned utopias and apocalyptic dreams, King questions what it means to be human in an increasingly digitized ecology.
In 2016, King received his MFA from Columbia University, New York and attended the Skowhegan Residency. He received his BFA from National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 2012. King has been the subject of three solo shows in 2017 - at MEYOHAS in New York, at Weekend in Seoul, and upcoming at Clima in Milan. In 2015, he had his first solo show, Confluence at Zwitschermaschine in Berlin. King has also curated a number of shows such as Bodies Burning At The Edges at LeRoy Neiman Gallery in New York.
