Jenna Rothstein’s Early Career and Practice
Jenna has an MFA in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths, University of London, and a BFA from the University of Michigan. Her work, a range of photography, conceptual installations and sculptures, contains its own dense and loaded language rooted in western ideas of gender and sexuality. With particular reference to American pop culture, the artist uses humour - and a deep, unironic appreciation of kitsch - to undermine traditional institutions of taste, class, value, and power.
The emerging artist continually produces thought-provoking installations and photographic studies - often featuring herself or her dog as a model. Using her work, she persists in decoding complex information to understand it better.
