Jane Foley (b. 1985, New Orleans) is a sculptor, performer, and sound artist living in Atlanta, Georgia (US). Her sound works explore isolation versus connectivity in public spaces, beginning with subtle repeated experiments in deep listening and reciprocity. She uses sculpture and performance as frameworks for interaction, favoring communication, experimentation, and process.
Jane Foley has created sound sculptures for the Architecture Triennale in Lisbon, Portugal and La Friche Belle de Mai in Marseille, France with Zurich-based Sound Development City, as well as produced a sound composition that played in taxicabs throughout the 5th Marrakech Biennale in Morocco. Following a 2017 residency at Atelierhaus Salzamt in Linz, Austria, she has been composing from field recordings, and chasing images of transitional sounds in built spaces. In Atlanta, she has created public works for Flux Projects, the High Museum, the Atlanta Beltline, and the Goat Farm, among others. Foley currently teaches sculpture at Georgia State University while completing an MFA program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
