‘All my work, one way or another, is about the apocalypse. The struggle in the gap between the ‘there and not there,’ that little place where the light comes in.’ Jo Wonder.
Her literature has been described as echoing Jeanette Winterson and Angela Carter, and Dame Marina Warner commended them for their subversive use of fairy tales in her book From the Beast to Blonde. She started out as an animator bringing to life her own stories for cinema, before she moved into performance. Performance JoWonder and the Psychic Tea Leaves was a part of Richard Strange’s Cabaret Futura, and Whitechapel’s First Thursdays. Commissioned more than once to make work by The Institute of Physics, she has illustrated a debate with Professor Brian Cox, addressing the paradoxical nature of quantum mechanics, and she is still completing a ‘Schrodinger’s Cat Box’ to support a future event with scientist Marcus du Sautoy.
