Future Perfect

Jes was co-curator, with Theresa Bergne, of an ambitious art commissioning programme in Hengrove, south Bristol. Future Perfect began in February 2012 and concluded in 2016.

The programme is made up of three commissions by Nils Norman, David Thorpe, Martino Gamper and a book of drawings by local resident Garth England. The theme for the programme is the future; a notional, fantastical future which embraces extraordinary possibilities and dreams.
