Jenny Kendler

Jenny Kendler's work explores human beings' complex relationships with the natural world. She presents her intimate sculptural works, drawings and installations as a counterpoint to the view of nature as something to be possessed, suggesting instead, it is we who are possessed by nature.

Working at the intersection of art, activism, and the natural sciences, Kendler seeks to complicate the space between our concepts of 'nature' and 'culture' in order to re-enchant human beings' relationship with the natural world. She asks viewers to reexamine the idea of nature as something outside themselves, making space in their worldview for the radical, transformative otherness of life on our bio-diverse Earth.

Kendler’s sculptural works and drawings use delicacy, ornamentation and intricacy to echo the subtle and mysterious patterns of the living world. These seemingly fragile works draw viewers in, rekindling feelings of interconnection and wonderment. Seeking to start conversations about the natural world with diverse audiences, Kendler’s practice also spans public projects, sculptural interventions in unexpected locations, fundraising and activism.

Cross-pollinating environmental activism, feminism and nature-geekery Kendler seeks to reinvent 'the Naturalist' for an era of new challenges. She is particularly interested in showing how the feminization and 'othering' of the Earth allows for reckless exploitation of natural resources, and how the lack of public consciousness of our status as animals ourselves props up the artificial separation between human beings and the rest of the living world.
