Statement

Jenny Yurshansky’s practice includes a combination of sculptures, installations, and site specific interventions, which often manipulate ordinary materials into physical realities that defy phenomenal logic.  Though a conceptual approach is used to define the parameters of each project, she also employs an aesthetic sense of materiality so that a tension is established between the poetic and empiric. Yurshansky often makes use of negative space and erasure in her work in order to create a place for deductive reasoning, so that it may be possible to determine that which is known by first establishing what is not known. As a whole, her practice is engaged with an immediacy of time and space; one that is collapsed into the intangible moment of an ever-vanishing present.

Jenny Yurshansky is an American artist who was born in Rome. She received her MFA in Visual Art from UC Irvine and was a participant in the post‐graduate Critical Studies course at the Malmö Art Academy.  She is the co-founder of Persbo Studio an artist residency, sculpture park, and creative space in Sweden. In 2014 she was an Artist-in-Residence at Pitzer College Art Galleries, developing a site-specific project for a solo show in 2015.  This year she has been a Guest Artist Researcher at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm.  In 2012 she was an invited Artist-in-Residence connected to the exhibition Odor Water Limo in northern Norway. In 2010 Yurshansky was the first international artist awarded the Maria Bonnier Stipend from Bonniers Konsthall in Stockholm, the prize was awarded along with an exhibition. In 2010 she was invited for a residency and solo exhibition at Galleri Rostrum in Malmö and workspace in Los Angeles. Yurshansky has also participated in group shows at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Laguna Beach Art Museum, MAK Center, and LAXART, the Torrance Art Museum, the Armory Center for the Arts, the 7th Istanbul Biennial, the Hammer Museum, Rooseum Center for Contemporary Art in Malmö, and the Toyota Museum.  She is the recipient of numerous artist and curatorial grants.
