Contemporary Talks presents a conversation series with our artists in the Studio Artist Program. 

To kick off this exciting new program, we are inviting Jane Garver Foley—whose work is featured on the Studio Artist Program wall through July 30—to present about her current body of work and her experience with artist residencies.

Our Studio Artist Program supports local working artists by providing subsidized studio space and by fostering a collaborative environment supportive of the creative process. The Studio Artist Wall is generously supported by Georgia State University, The Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design.

Bio

Jane Garver Foley

Jane Foley (b*1985, New Orleans) is a sculptor, performer, and sound artist living in Atlanta, Georgia (US). Her sound works explore isolation versus connectivity in public spaces, beginning with subtle repeated experiments in deep listening and reciprocity. She uses sculpture and performance also as frameworks for interaction, creating physical spaces for unscripted involvement, favoring communication and process over controlled outcomes. Jane Foley has created site-specific public sound sculptures for the Architecture Triennale in Lisbon, Portugal and La Friche Belle de Mai in Marseille, France with Zurich-based Sound Development City, as well as produced a sound composition for Saout Radio that played in taxicabs throughout the 5th Marrakech Biennale in Morrocco. In Atlanta, she has created public works for Flux Projects, the Atlanta Beltline, WonderRoot, and the Goat Farm, among others. Following a recent residency at Atelierhaus Salzamt in Linz, Austria, she has been composing from layered field recordings, chasing ever-elusive images of transitional sounds in built spaces.
