David Jacques is a multi-media artist primarily involved with film. His practice engages with the subject of history, its narrative interpretations and the interplay between factual and fictional strategies of representation. His interest in deconstructing and re-apportioning the subject often results in the exploration of forgotten, marginalised and socially/politically disruptive sources. In 2010 he won the Liverpool Art Prize and was shortlisted for the Northern Art Prize. Recent screenings of his work include: Tate Liverpool Art turning Left; 17th International Video Festival VIDEOMEDEJA, Novi Sad (Serbia); WNDX Film Festival, Winnipeg (Canada) and Sheffield Fringe at BLOC Projects Sheffield. He lives and works in Liverpool.
