Brief Summary: Jenn Garland’s practice incorporates sculpture, installation, painting, and photography. Her art is informed by, and a reaction against, her scientific background researching human-environment interactions. A preoccupation with conflicted human drives characterises her work, along with an interest in materiality, time, and space. She creates simulations of places which open up alternative ways of knowing the past, and possible futures.

Garland has exhibited in group and solo shows nationally and internationally. She supports interdisciplinary arts practice and emerging artists in Perth as the Gallery Project Manager at Paper Mountain artist run initiative. Her work was recently acquired for the Artbank National collection. Her research about the ways people think about the future and understand the environment has been widely published.
