Jennifer Locke

New Genres and MFA Faculty

Jennifer Locke composes physically intense, sculptural actions in relation to the camera, audience, and specific architecture in order to explore viewing hierarchies and the construction of meaning. Working in performance and video, her actions focus on cycles of duration and visibility, and draw from her experiences as a dominatrix, wrestler, and artists’ model. Locke has exhibited at the 2010 California Biennial; 48th Venice Biennale; Air de Paris, Paris; 9th Havana Biennial; the Basel Art Fair; La Panaderia, Mexico City; Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions; Canada, New York; the Berkeley Art Museum; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
