Watch this space for more information about Casey’s Take Over! project.
Casey Jenkins is a performance/installation/community artist exploring intimacy, identity and the interplay between modes of power (individual and institutional, perceived and concrete) particularly pertaining to gender. Works range from meditative to disruptive, centering direct interaction and audience collaboration. Jenkins co-founded radical craft groups Craft Cartel and Knit Your Revolt, subverting and honouring techniques disparaged as ‘women’s work’ with street art, workshops and 100% participatory performances. Their art features in documentaries, academic papers and art publications worldwide. Recent works shown by: FOLA Melbourne; Venice International Performance Art Week; London Science Gallery; SomoS Berlin; Mimosa House London; Bangkok Art Week and Cuerpas Internacional, Santiago.
