Jasmine Powell is an artist and writer who currently resides in France. She holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts and a PhD, both from Sydney College of the Arts. Her thesis explained the connection between individualism and the artist throughout modernity, while also exploring how creativity can often be fuelled by subjective visions of the world. Jasmine also spent time studying at the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts in Paris and at the Universität der Künste in Berlin.
Jasmine works with video, installation, sound and photography, and her work has been included in various exhibitions and screenings in Australia, the USA and Europe. Her work features numerous approaches including: the reworking of archive footage; a sort of amateur urban ethnography; and sculptural installation. In 2006 she acted as Director of Newspace Gallery, the former gallery of the SCA student union. From 2008-2012 Jasmine worked at the University of Western Sydney across various roles, including research, project management and tutoring. In 2013 Jasmine contributed two pedagogical articles to 72 Assignments: The Foundation Course in Art and Design Today, published by Paris College of Art Press.
