Statement

 

Alice Jenner’s work is compelled by an impulse to compartmentalise, classify and fragment. Searching for symbols to compare, she uproots personal allegories from an internal, semi-conscious bank of images.  At once collating the optical, the immaterial and the physical; she then explores the units which make up how we experience the world around us. Borrowed images or objects, often referencing biology, are collected to register with this particular subjective, in an effort to comment on broader themes such as anthropology.

Her simultaneous interests in the external and internal are embodied by the relationship between drawing, sculpture and installation. Her drawings hint at a three dimensionality, contemplating ideas about weight and balance, which highlight the physicality of their invention. Alternatively, objects are subjected to appear optically flat by installing low or being hung on the wall. Curious rather than interrogative, she seeks to play with these aspects attempting to find a counterpoint.
