Iris Jacobs (1979) is a Dutch visual artist and filmmaker currently based in Barcelona. Jacobs has been exposed to a stream of music and musicians during her childhood and she could watch music videos for hours. She loved to dance, imitate silly walks and design characters, while as she cycled through nature and pinched her arm at age eleven to wonder if this life was even real.
Her first short film 'Fight Flight Free' premiered in Barcelona in 2018, and travelled the festival circuit worldwide. Since then she has made a number of music video’s and (dance) films.
Currently Jacobs is working on a new collage series; 'Leaving Things Out', writing and directing several film projects and theatre performances, while expanding the workshops and experiences she designs for 'Curious Creatives', a community of artists in Barcelona; which she founded in 2018.
