Jenny Brown


Jenny Brown combines video, photography and installation, often as multi-screen environments, some incorporate community-scripted performances: a boat for the low-lying Pacific Islands (Mayday-2006), a train-carriage in coal mining-country for Cementa_2015, and a five-township co-organised roving corroboree (2019). Exhibiting work in 13 countries, Brown’s screenings include festivals at the New York Film Anthologies (2017/2020), Florianópolis, Brazil (2017), Los Angeles (2003) and New Delhi, India (2007). The Australia-China Council and DAAD awarded her creative practice scholarships, and further research programmes have been undertaken in Kiev, Brisbane and Santiago, Chile. Brown contributed to the book Ecoart in Action (2022) and An Ecotopian Lexicon (2019) discusses her ‘solastalgia’ series. Following an Australian Postgraduate Award, Jenny gave presentations at the CAA conference artist panel, Los Angeles (2010) and the Geneva University of Art and Design (2012), and in 2017 received her doctorate from the University of Sydney. In 2021 Jenny was commissioned by Performance Space Sydney for their Dreamworks Festival following participation in the masterclass Fabulation for Future held by the Konrad Wolf Film University, Potsdam.
