Constance Jaeggi is a Swiss photographic artist based between London, UK and Fort Worth, TX.

Jaeggi moved to Texas from her native Switzerland in 2009 to pursue her degree from TCU and begin her competitive cutting horse-riding career. Jaeggi has studied at the New York Film Academy and most recently completed a Master of Art History and Art World Practice at Christie’s in London.

Jaeggi’s work focuses on the relationship between horse and human, in particular women. She uses horses as a backdrop for exploring themes of intimacy and identity, connection and power dynamics.

Her recent project, The Devils was short-listed for the 2021 Critical Mass Awards and is subject of a solo exhibition at the National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth October 2021 – March 2022. This marks her second solo exhibition at the National Cowgirl Museum.

A book on The Devils is to be released in October 2021.
