Brittany Mojo was born and raised in Northeast NJ. She received her BFA in Ceramics from California State University, Long Beach and her MFA from UCLA in 2016. She currently teaches ceramics and sculpture at Orange Coast College and LaSierra University. She is a member of the artist-run collective, TSA LA.
Interested in time and labor, Mojo investigates the histories of gendered work through the manipulation of material. Using traditional processes, Mojo negotiates the utility of service and its relationship to women's work. Positing these processes as valid through their magnification ultimately questions certain value systems, while aiming to reconstruct rigid material hierarchies and gendered processes.
Using the image of function as an armature for material exploration and installation, objects act as stand-ins for a lived experience within our everyday. Objects like vessels, chairs, lamps, tools, bikes, and furniture are realized from materials that leave evidence of the hand. The work confronts sculpture and craft, fine art and design and the nuanced concepts within.
