Jemma Egan, born in 1982, Liverpool, completed an MA in Sculpture at The Royal College of Art in 2015 and BA in Fine Art in Liverpool in 2005. Her work uses objects to contemplate our particular moment in time, investigating ideas and languages of production, consumption, labour and taste. She engages with subjects in a way that considers the terms of their existence within the world.
