is a cabinet specialist as her installations allude to a collector´s organised chaos. An anthropological eye is present in her ethnographic stories, and their humanness reflect the artist’s own histories.
Timmer’s work unearths locality and personality: these amass in a cultural study sense of experience. With a preoccupation with the non and pre-scientific, her installations show some of the essence of Jenny’s personal experiences in remote and undeveloped farms in Africa. These memories construe further memories, and they materialize in non-binary displays of remnants that humans leave behind, may they be organic or a product of a ready-made culture. They embody the energies of the relationships between man and their environments, leaving the artist no choice but to concoct a tincture that sends the viewer into a daze with the alchemy in sight.
The cultural artefacts Jenny Timmer displays are creations from personal, environmental and anthropological findings… a sort of artistnographic legacy.
