Savannah Jubic

American, b. 1993

Savannah Jubic is a Chicago-based fiber and installation artist whose work explores themes of anxiety and desperation through labor-intensive gesture. Materiality is of the utmost importance as the artist processes intangible concepts, ultimately realized in haptic forms. Processes such as hand weaving, destruction of woven cloth, and repetitive mending lend a direct physical engagement, their physicality embedding emotion in object, performance, and installation. Jubic’s work has been exhibited both in the United States and internationally. She has been the recipient of a Distinguished Scholar Scholarship from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a John W Kurtich Travel Scholarship, and a Mary Hambidge Weaving Fellowship.
