* Eden Lennox

Eden Lennox’s passion for art became a calling at the age of 18, when she completed a Diploma of Fine Art. Since then Eden has contributed works to more than 25 solo or joint exhibitions in Perth and Sydney.
In 2010, she gained a Masters’ degree in Visual Art (Jewellery Production), from Curtin University.

Eden has also channelled her passion for art towards work as a curator and gallery manager, and has taught art to venues from male prisons to special art workshops at high schools.
Her work is informed, in part, by family history: such as her late, larger-than-life father, Tony, who survived the Holocaust and arrived in Australia as a teenage refugee – to become a success in everything from welding submarines on Cockatoo Island and riding circus elephants, to building and managing hotels.

The notion of precious objects is the key consideration in my enquiry, and I examine preciousness in terms of an individual’s territorial identity. I consider how an individual’s relationship to a place or a territory is expressed culturally, which extends into objects and the Australian contemporary consumer marketplace. My practice is reflective; it is informed by observations I make whilst considering the indexing of social space and the concomitant relationship of specific objects in a particular social canon. My concern is the world of objects, materiality and the crossing over, re-locating or re-contextualizing of precious objects. This is played out by embedding social visual indices in the objects I design and fabricate. Found objects and post consumables are used for their indexicality to trigger and build a visual tension in my work via building a narrative using the mechanisms of metonymy and metaphor. The observations that inform my practice are filtered through contemporary culture and the art-world.
