My childhood in Tennessee, enfolded in a large family, was shaped by the rich texture of mountains, swamps, lakes, woods and creeks. Dull hours never crossed my path. And the habit of careful observation of nature, instilled by my father, inspired curiosity and resourcefulness that lead to wonder, to inventiveness. This was pragmatic as well as fantastic. Also, of profound influence were years spent in the Low Country of South Carolina, where the culture of story-telling, tall yarns, ghost stories, and the space for mystery thrived.
Jenny Lynn的童年是在田纳西州度过的,那是一个大家庭,周围环绕着群山、湖泊、树林和溪流。在这种环境下成长,她度过了充实的孩童时期。那时在她父亲的教导灌输下,Jenny Lynn保持着对自然环境细致入微的观察,这样的习惯为好奇心的培养埋下了种子,保持求知欲与充满创造性的人格伴一直伴随着着Jenny Lynn成长。在南卡罗莱纳州那片充满民间传奇土地生活的岁月,也为她那充满叙事性的创作奠定了基调。
We are both animal and symbol maker. The practice of painting and sculpting is both a reckoning with my own body and the urge toward language. Language embodied and ever in flux — devouring, digesting, regurgitating, absorbing and reflecting desire. The longing for the sacred, merging with another, the clamoring of interiority, the porosity of boundary — these are states of being whose tensions seek me out. Also, being a twin has propelled me to create imagery of body doubling and shifting sexes to invite a ripe confusion. My animal imagery acts as the sacred — the bridge between ourselves and nature, the offering to divinity as well as sacrifice to our voracious appetites.
在Jenny Lynn 的人生信条中,作为人类的我们,身上皆存在着与生俱来的动物性。她在绘画与雕塑的过程,都是对自我身体的探索和对行为语言的解读。这种语言象征表现为:吞噬,消化,回环反复,这一过程也反射出人类本能的欲望。对神圣的渴望,与内心的喧嚣相碰撞、融合,它们驱策Jenny Lynn去创造意象化的身体以及各异的性别,去营造一种性别模糊感。她动物性的意象表象是神圣的,在本身作为人的我们与自然间架起一座桥梁,对神性进行诠释的同时也不忌讳展现出人性的贪婪。
In 1998, painting, my first interest, needed a more performative incarnation. Music, dance, video projection and lyrics began to enable me to bring my paintings to ‘life’. Time spent in West Africa (1993-4), where traditionally community, art and spirituality are one, was an irresistible inspiration. Dance has also been a constant — an energy that informs my work. Syncopation is the interval between the beat, the delay, anticipation and provocation that allows for the lost moment. In this spirit, “Conversation in the Grotto”, “33 Swoonings”, “Sewing Songs”, and “Parabolic Arc” were performances realized during these years.
Jenny Lynn运用绘画的执念起始于 1998年,在创作中为了避免媒材的单一性,她仍需要其他的媒介进行辅助,于是音乐,舞蹈,影像和诗歌开始出现,与她的画作相结合。
在西非的传统部落生活的经历中,当地的原生文化和精神信仰与Jenny Lynn之间产生了羁绊。自那时起,舞蹈也成为她创作中的元素之一,音节中的切分,旋律中的间隙,这些看似丢失,却是留白的瞬间,都被Jenny Lynn运用在她的作品中。
Having numerous deaf family members became a touchstone for my interest in non-verbal communication and the barriers of spoken language. As homage to oral culture and universal rituals, “Grupo Cuerpo”, an international call and response, knits together numerous communities as participants introduced themselves through gesture only.
接触过一些聋人家庭的Jenny Lynn,着眼于非言语交际和言语交流之间的障碍。本着对口头文化的尊敬和普世的礼仪,“Grupo Cuerpo” 作为标准的形容词,将这些数以万计只用身体语言进行沟通交流的团体定义。
With “Precise Breathing” (aboutthebuzz.com), a multimedia project about the honeybee, I explored our relationship to this extraordinary animal. In “The Beekeeper’s Journal” the marvels of the hymenoptera are laid out in contrast to imagery of the stark vanishing of the honeybee. With the most recent projects, “Zoopsia” and “Why This World”, composed of painting and ceramic sculpture, the animal is herself, as well as our mirror. The non-human animal is sometimes playful, sometimes savage, often contradictory, but also standing in for something much larger than the human species alone.
“Precise Breathing” 是Jenny Lynn关于蜜蜂主题的多媒体作品,她在这其中探索了人类与这一看似平凡,却背负着巨大使命的昆虫的关系。在“The Beekeeper’s Journal” 这一组作品中被它们膜翅目的布局分布与蜜蜂的不断消失形成对比。近期的作品“Zoopsia” 和 “Why This World”,由绘画与陶瓷雕塑组成,动物的本身,作为我们审视自我的镜子。这些动物性多数是捉摸不透的,有时残酷,有时矛盾,但正是这种动物性,在某些时候是远远伟大于人性所存在的。
