Ella Jones (b.1994) is an artist and cultural practitioner. Her practice harnesses the dialectical nature of Cubism to explore the tensions and contradictions between race and class in South- East London, the community in which she grew up. Presenting these histories alongside those of Cubism, Ella highlights Cubism’s own relationship with Colonialism, moving back and forth between history and the present, the centre and the periphery, challenging the Cubist form whilst pushing it to represent more.
