Wendy Jacob's work straddles traditions of sculpture, performance and invention, and explores relationships between architecture and perceptual experience. Projects include breathing walls and ceilings, tightropes through living rooms and chairs that embrace. Jacob's practice is often collective. Recent projects include working with scientists, circus performers, and members of an explorers club. Jacob’s work has been exhibited in the Centre Georges-Pompidou, Paris; Zero1 Biennial, San Jose; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; Kunsthaus Graz, Austria; and the 1991 Biennial Exhibition, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Jacob is also a founding member of the four-person artists' collaborative, Haha (working 1989 – 2009). Jacob was recently awarded a Fulbright Visiting Professorship at the Glasgow School of Art, Scotland, where she will be investigating utopian communities.
