From Galway, Ireland, lives and works in Sussex, England.
Inge Jacobsen was born in Galway, Ireland. She attended Kingston University, London, where she studied Photography. She has worked as a professional artist since graduating in 2011.
Jacobsen’s work has been exhibited in multiple shows around the world, from London to New York. In 2012 she was invited to exhibit alongside legendary YBA Sarah Lucas at Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio Shop as part of the ‘Selling Sex’ show.
Inge’s other achievements include winning the Director’s choice award at the final Cork Street Exhibition in 2013 and being featured on countless websites, blogs and in over 40 publications worldwide. These publications include mainstream art, design, fashion magazines and websites such as Vogue, Juxtapoz Magazine, Frankie Magazine and FAD. In 2012 she was included in a list of the top 20 rising talents by a prominent Danish lifestyle magazine.
In 2011 the world renowned luxury brand Georg Jensen, invited Jacobsen to re-energies their Spring/Summer 2012 campaign. Her images were subsequently used in every Georg Jensen store and concession stand worldwide and represented the brand for 6 months. In Sydney, Australia the campaign was launched in association with Vogue, who included her work in their June 2012 issue.
Recent commissions include American Express, who approached Jacobsen for her unique signature style and to offer a fresh perspective of three of their iconic cards, as part of an exciting new advertising campaign. These launched on all of their social media platforms in April 2014
Jacobsen mainly uses found advertising imagery in her practice and uses thread as a way of physically intervening and appropriate their meaning. She calls this ‘hijacking’ the image and its intended message.
