Jenny's family hails from the Bundjalung Nation and she works at the nexus of art, film-making and new technologies. Her work is exhibited both nationally and internationally - including 'Interactiva01', a biennale at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Mexico. Jenny was also part of the curatorial working group for 'conVerge - where art and science meet' - the 2002 Adelaide Biennial, which was a major exhibition of New Media artworks.
Jenny is part of a new wave of exciting networks, such as the Indigenous New Media Arts Collective, which is a national body of artists/film-makers/designers.
'Mimicry' is another smaller collective which seeks to encompass both contemporary and traditional ideologies of Australian art practice - both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal - and to create a hybridized language with reference to body, space, history.
As an Artist in Residence Jenny has created works in collaboration with the Hermannsburg Potters of the Northern Territory, Kaurna Plains School in South Australia and the Coen Community in Cape York.
She founded and curates CyberTribe, an Indigenous Online Gallery run through FineArt Forum. CyberTribe aims to encourage the production and exhibition of Indigenous Art with a focus on the digital. Check it out at: www.fineartforum.org/Gallery/cybertribe.html
Jenny is currently studying a Research Masters in the area of Indigenous Uses of New Technologies. She has previously been a member of the Australia Council's New Media Arts Board and the ANAT Board.
