Jessica Pierotti is an interdisciplinary artist, teacher, and organizer living in Chicago, Illinois, USA. She received her Masters in Fine Arts from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2016 and works as the Deputy Director for a small arts non-profit, LATITUDE Chicago.
Pierotti is preoccupied with discovering power dynamics at play at every scale and setting, driven by a desire for control and the consequential anxiety. The resulting works engage with absurdity, and an obsessive and sincere interest in attempting to understand the world through a reductive process. In addition, she is an image maker that is hungry to better understand the effects and results of mediation upon images using the camera, the eye, the memory or the hand. She often works with personal and banal content as a means of focusing in on the modest complexity of daily life.
In Finnish "Lippa" means kiosk and translates to the word “umbrella”, a place of shelter. Kiosks or in Berlin the beloved after-hour “Späti" as we know them are small stores, a source of commerce and distributors of magazines, tobacco, sweets, Döner and/or beverages. However, originally, they were little pavilions of culture. In Egypt, they were places of worship.
Lippa Stopp is a reverse kiosk, housing a bibliotheka: nomadic collection of artist books, discourse: space to talk & a workshop hub: make/share zines.
Lippa Stopp invites to circulate printed and ephemeral matters that €€ can’t buy.

Limo & Beer on the house
For three months, I have lived in Berlin as a resident artist in a studio where the space is divided into two parts:
a white room with high ceilings, which serves as a gallery space, and a living area with a bedroom and kitchen, which has become my home.
For the last Open Studio Show of my artist residency I have decided to use my living area instead of the gallery space.
For 4 hours I will be performing in a format of “Performative Photography”. Guests are invited to enter my living area / my home individually or in groups of two, while I'll be taking live photographs.
