J E N N Y   C A S H M O R E

I am a contemporary, multi-disciplinary artist living in the Wye Valley on the English/Welsh border. I work individually and collaboratively to create and respond to projects, exhibitions, residencies and commissions. 

My practice examines the liminal spaces of day-to-day life through time-based, location- specific interventions. I work with performance, lens-based mediums and bodily actions to examine our construction of communities, use of space, and way of life. I enjoy playing with and manipulating aspects of everyday life and am interested in both animate and inanimate relationships within these contexts.
