Gallery221@HCC is pleased to announce Kenny Jensen: Although I am not you, I am not other than you either, on view in Gallery3@HCC July 22 – September 19, 2019.
A Florida native who spent much of his childhood outdoors, artist Kenny Jensen (b. 1977) maintains a deep connection to the state’s unique natural environment. Jensen actively collects, categorizes, and re-contextualizes found organic objects and phenomena, which in turn serve as inspiration or raw material for sculptures, installations, paintings, photographs, and videos. His exhibition Although I am not you, I am not other than you either in Gallery3@HCC contemplates current social issues like tribalism, xenophobia, and climate change apathy/denial by drawing comparisons between human behavior and natural processes found in insect and plant life. Jensen, who received his BFA from Carson Newman University in 2000, currently lives and works in St. Petersburg, FL.
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 5:00-8:00pm, with a panel discussion with artist Gabriel Ramos to begin at 6:00pm. The event will take place on both the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Learning Resources Center / Library building (DLRC), HCC Dale Mabry Campus. Food, libations, and music will be provided for free, courtesy of the gallery.
The event is free and open to the public; parking is also free on campus in any open lot.
Gallery3@HCC is located on the third floor of the Library/Learning Resources Center Building (DLRC) on the HCC Dale Mabry Campus.
