Isabelle Jusseaume (b. In Limoges, France in 1986) is a Brooklyn-based artist interested in the appropriation of images and cultural elements as well as in confronting the idea of collective memory and personal feelings. She received a B.A in Art History in Paris, France and applies that historiographical approach to her work. She co-founded Art Vandelay press in 2014 and has since exhibited at art book fairs as well as curated various publications.

performance, video, installation or sculpture.
