JENNIE THWING

I am a New York-based artist and film maker. I have exhibited my work at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Seattle, the Arlington Arts Center in Arlington, the Creative Alliance in Baltimore, the Center for Art and Visual Culture in Baltimore, the Fondazione Mudima per l'Arte Contemporanea in Milan, the Independent Museum of Contemporary Art (IMCA) in Cyprus, The New York Studio Gallery and Soho 20 in New York and was recently chosen as a Center for Emerging Artists Fellow and a 2014 Queens Arts Fund Grant recipient .

Using video, installation, and animation I create imaginary narratives that reference my history, ideology, social context, family mythologies and dreams. The subject matter ranges from miniature animated dioramas to historical reenactments. All of my work involves the anthropomorphism of nature, refuse and human environments.

My most recent project, My Black Hole is an animated portrait of the evolution of my studio practice, highlighting the dichotomy of the artist's joy and sadness after completing a body of work. It takes place inside a constructed room over 4 weeks and was created as a model (using my own perception of “home”) for an upcoming film series titled "The Living Room."

“My Black Hole” was created at the Millay Colony Artist Residency and supported by a grant from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.
