Our Collective Landscape (2023)
Installation, printed book and wall hanging with print on cotton
This installation by Jaccaidi Hypolite-Dyer explores the radical possibilities that occur when we, as a collective, begin to re-imagine our shared space. Using documentation as a method, it unearths and records the immaterial and the imagined. The multi-modal book and wall-hanging displayed here pulls together texts written by the artist, as well as images found and taken during her research.
Here, we are free to move through the spaces of slippage and witness what emerges from the liminal spaces in-between. Through this work, the artist calls us to consider how we shape our environment and, in turn, how it shapes us. Architectural space acts as a vessel for a wider discussion of the institutional and systemic spaces that contain us and the role we can play in conjuring these systems anew.

Jaccaidi Hypolite-Dyer is an interdisciplinary artist who works across paint, moving image, text and sculpture.
Informed by research, gathered in many forms, her practice delves into the socio-political, the global, and the personal. Interested always in the intricate interplay between the individual/the collective and our relation to systems, institutions, global movements (past, present and future). Jaccaidi also draws on our rich points of connection in community. Through research, she attempts to understand the webs that bind the world around us and explore how we may repurpose these to make something anew.
