We are so excited to welcome our latest Wolfman Artist in Residence, Shiloh Jines! Shiloh will be working on a rad project about poetry and typography and ampersands and we are so stoked to have her in the shop! Come say hello to Shiloh, Fridays starting next week. Yes!
More on the artist:
Shiloh makes hybrid poem-realities through merging handmade printed matter with video art. She examines the presence & absence of materiality in language & book-forms—how the world necessitates & degenerates a physical body. Much of her practice involves deconstructing the codex as an object of power & considers the visceral ways language can manifest in/on/through a body. Growing up in Eastern Tennessee, her identity as an Appalachian Queer & how she has come to critically understand this identity plays a central role in her poetic works. She believes in the magic of remembering, forming deep accountability & what Baldwin referred to as, “the necessity of the long view.”
Shiloh is a poet & visual artist based in Oakland, California. She is the co-author of the hand-bound letterpress chapbook SITE OF IMPACT (Eucalyptus Press 2016). She is currently working on her poetry manuscript, “& if it flows like pity/ then it spills like viscous fluid” and Mills College MFA thesis exhibition.
