Jordan Loeppky-Kolesnik’s installation projects utilize sculpture, architecture, and video to create a type of cinema, leading the viewer through a series of stories, affects, and sensations. They are interested in the breakdown of the art object, subjective emotional states, and melding with site and context.
They are based in Montreal and Richmond, USA, where they are currently completing an MFA in Sculpture + Extended Media at Virginia Commonwealth University, and received their BFA in Intermedia from Concordia University. Recent exhibitions of their work took place at Modern Fuel (Kingston), VALET (Richmond), articule (Montreal), and 8eleven (Toronto). They are the recipient of the 2017 Saunderson Prize for Emerging Artists and the 2018 Dedalus Foundation MFA Fellowship in Painting & Sculpture.
