Jessica Mallios’ photographs and video work examine how objects are seen—dislocating them, suspending their recognition for the viewer, and exploring the relationship between spectacle and artifice. Mallios holds an MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College and a BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Her work has been presented in many solo and group exhibitions such as For An Experience of Wholeness (2013) at the Digital Media Gallery, Lycoming College in Williamsport; Contemporary Photographic Practice and the Archive (2013) at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin; X Y Z – The Geometric Impulse in Abstract Art (2012) at the Torrance Art Museum; and Perspectives 168 (2010) at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. She is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Art at The Ohio State University in Columbus.
