In her practice Jonerheim questions and investigates the quotidian experience where objects and encounters hardly register. She is interested in the purposes of objects, both their functional and emotional intentions.
Her inquiries lie in the relationship with form and have through reason of practicality, psychological, emotional, remembrance or simply aesthetic purposes. Objects through time and history may lose their value or significance and thereby run the risk of becoming overlooked, taken for granted and often discarded.
This reinvention of things is often done with a bit of humour and with an element of surprise and an unpredictable outcome. Her objective is to reintroduce things back into the environment as a new way of seeing, connecting and understand the world we live in, to evoke a different experience and encounter with familiar items and focus on a new attention and meaning.

Jonerheim is predominately interested in materials sourced from the domestic environment. With a little humour objects get reinvented through reassembly, often with a sense of theatricality. The artist’s aim is to evoke a different experience and encounter with familiar items and focus on a new attention and meaning.
Gate Curate is a new and unique collaboration between the Gate Theatre, CHELSEA space and Chelsea Arts Club Trust.
Every Gate show will feature an installation in our foyer by an emerging visual artist that is a bold and surprising response to the work on stage.
