Dean Kenning’s artworks include kinetic sculpture, sound, video, collage and live performance. He is interested in creating a non-contemplative aesthetic of material compulsion and idiocy, but other work is often directly communicative, concerned with political subject matter or used in pedagogical situations. He is interested in this combination of cognitive recognition (communication) and non-recognition (strangeness) as a dialectical method of production, and how it relates to the question of specific artistic function.
