Jennifer Brant is an interdisciplinary artist whose emergent research and material-based practice tries to concurrently experience, facilitate and chronicle interactions with the more-than-human world. She explores systems and relationships, marginalized spaces, complicated emotional states and futurity. Using installations and interventions, field studies, textile practices, writing and drawing, she encourages and documents moments that bring an awareness of interconnection and kinship, gently interrupt passivity and cultivate alternative narratives to our current mythologies of progress and nature.
Born and raised on the West Coast of Canada, an uninvited guest on the traditional, unceded territories of the Tslei-wa-tuth, Squamish and Musqueam people as well as the territory of the Tla-amin people, she divides her time between Vancouver and a small, off the grid island. Brant holds a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, a B.Ed from the University of British Columbia and an MFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
