CHARLIE JEFFERY
British artist Charlie Jeffery's artistic output through video, performance, sculpture and
installation is very much based in the real physical and raw world where themes of
language and word play, working with organic materials and the notion of indeterminacy
and chance, are  central along with the use and representation of the body.

He recently took part in La nuit Blanche in Paris and in November 2006 he showed several
new works in the exhibition Horizon sythemtique  organised by L’ambassade.  His practice
shifts between individual, collaborative and curatorial projects.  His current ventures are a
series of video programs called Vidéoïsme which have been shown in Paris, Medellin,
Colombia and Marseille, the most recent of which is entitled Phase de transition de phase,
in collaboration with the art critic and curator Maxime Theiffine. He is currently working on a
publication sculptural hommage to the black soul singer Barry White.  He will be in
residence in Medellin, Colombia at the end of 2007 as part of ongoing transatlantic co-
operative project  El Puente involving artists from South America and Europe, he will be
present a large scale public performance as part of his residency.
