SCULPTURE

Jenny Zander

 

As a young artist supporting and engaging in intersectional arts and movements, I’ve been able to work alongside some passionate arts activists doing a wide array of creative resistance work in the Twin Cities. Art has added energy to advocacy, resonating with people at deeper emotional levels, while conveying what cannot be said with mere facts. I have found my voice and comfort in the arts. Through body art and multimedia sculpture, I try to capture life's beauty in the many faces, shades, and shapes it comes in, while highlighting environmental issues that impact frontline communities.


When I paint, I paint on people because a person communicates so much through their body language. My body of work explores the relationships women have with their surrounding environments and the natural world. I center my work around women because there is a strong connection between the violence inflicted on those who identify as female and Mother Earth. The extraction and exploitation of Earth’s wealth also parallels the displacement and commodification of black, brown and queer bodies. My art is often ambiguous, which allows viewers to interpret in their own way. Each piece serves as a silent tribute to the fragility and resilience of nature and humanity.

eDuard Helmbold

eDuard moves between sculpture and performance to materialise his concepts. Using casting as method and metaphor he is currently exploring the role of nostalgia and shame in the negotiation and production of cultural identities: identities cast into moulds of memory, language and landscape. 

In 2017 he graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Visual Art and Design (Hons) and was awarded the Constance Gordon Johnson Prize for Sculpture and Installation (2016), President of the Friends of the South Australian School of Art Prize (2016), Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society prize (2017) and the City Rural Helpmann Academy Travel Award (2018). eDuard is currently based at Fontanelle Studios in Port Adelaide, Australia.
