Jane Foley (b*1985, New Orleans) is a sculptor, performer, and sound artist living in Atlanta, Georgia (US). Her sound works explore isolation versus connectivity in public spaces, beginning with subtle repeated experiments in trust and reciprocity. She uses sculpture and performance also as frameworks for interaction, often engaging kinetic movement and unscripted involvement, favoring communication and process over controlled outcomes.
Jane Foley has created site-specific public sound sculptures for the Architecture Triennale in Lisbon, Portugal and La Friche Belle de Mai in Marseille, France with Zurich-based Sound Development City, as well as produced a sound composition for Saout Radio that played in taxicabs throughout the 5th Marrakech Biennale in Morrocco. She has created research projects through invitations to international residencies including Fljótstunga, in Iceland, and Atelierhaus Salzamt in Linz, Austria. In Atlanta, Foley has created public works for Flux Projects, the Atlanta Beltline, WonderRoot, and the Goat Farm, among others. She serves on the board of the Lucky Penny, and teaches sculpture at Georgia State University, as well as freelancing at Theater Emory while attending graduate school at The Art Institute of Chicago.
