Jeff Guess' work is predominantly an artistic and archeological investigation of the technical image and its multifarious entanglements with language and voice. His more recent projects expand upon these considerations, exploring the relations between bodies, communication and computation in disciplines as diverse as professional sports, spirit phenomena and animal language projects.
Recent exhibitions and performances include, Nous ne sommes pas le nombre que nous croyons être, La Cité International des Arts (Paris, 2018), Autophoto, Fondation Cartier, (Paris, 2017), The House of Dust, Cneai (Paris, 2017) and Fonderie Darling (Montreal, 2017), Haunted by Algorithms, Galerie Ygrec (Paris, 2017), Hyperimaging! Images in and out of our screens, National Gallery (Kosovo, 2017), Staring at you staring at me, Amado Art Space/Lab (Seoul, 2016), Streaming Egos – Digital Identities, NRW forum, (Düsseldorf, 2016), and Au revoir, l’Aître Saint-Maclou, (Le Havre, 2016).
He is professor of new media at the École Nationale Supérieure d'Arts Paris-Cergy. With Gwenola Wagon, he co-directs the research platform, Media Mediums, and has co-curated two exhibitions, Media Mediums (Paris, 2014) and Haunted by Algorithms (Paris, 2017). Also in this framework, we have created a collection of books and have invited dozens of artists and historians to give talks and performances. With Yves Citton, Emmanuel Guez, and Martial Poirson we also co-organised Archéologie des Media, Écologies de l'Attention, a symposium at the Centre Culturel International de Cerisy in 2016. The proceedings of the event will be published in Fall 2018 (UGA Editions).
