Catalogue Note

Jill Magid seeks intimate relationship with impersonal structures. She explores concealed information, disclosure as a 'raison d'être' and intimacy in relation to power and observation. As artist, she enters into a close-knit relationship with the individuals or organisation she selects as her subject matter. This connection often evolves into an intense, personal search for the subject in question and the organization to which the subject belongs. The relations are unique with regards time and place and reflect upon the broader social context from which they have arisen.
In recent years Magid has worked with CCTV, police, and forensic identification experts to further penetrate these systems of control. In 2005, the Dutch secret service (AIVD) invited Magid to create a work of art for their headquarters. She interviewed members of the AIVD with the intention of giving a personal face to the organization, without revealing individual identities. The commission resulted in the exhibition Article 12 in 2008. Vaulting is one of a series of quotes from a novel by Jerzy Kosinski. The system is based on the secret service's practice of highlighting text to be erased, and the artist's own system of marking.

Jill Magid was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 2001-2002.
