Haunting images of Manchester Museum’s animal collections took centre stage at a recent art show.
Also included in Jenna’s selection of final pieces for the group exhibition, called Eks’Vee, was a wraparound print showing monochrome images from the Variety of Life case.
Writing about the project, Jenna notes: “A Stereoscopic Adventure depicts spaces of spectacle and wonder inhabiting the plane beyond between the living and the dead, from which uncanny apparitions appear and take hold.”
She adds: “Using silk and canvas to reconstruct the world acts as a reflection upon the reproducibility of the temporal spaces as fabrications of mechanical reproductions.”
Jenna took the original photographs in the museum back in spring using a 3D camera (See Living Worlds in 3D) and has since transformed them into these impressive artworks inspired by the natural world.
The pieces formed part of a postgraduate degree show by Nottingham Trent University students at the Surface Gallery and Jenna sent some shots of the setting up process so we also get a peek behind the scenes of an exhibition.
Congratulations to Jenna for her great work and thanks very much again for sharing her images.
