Bone Stories is an examination of how trauma and anxiety are passed down generationally. Starting with a graph and translating it into a Voronoi diagram, this piece maps both my mother’s and my anxieties around a specific set of issues, to determine where they overlap and what we share.

Jennifer Brant
Vancouver, BC

Jennifer Brant is an interdisciplinary artist whose emergent research and material-based practice tries to concurrently experience, facilitate and chronicle interactions with both the human and more-than-human world. She explores systems and relationships, marginalized spaces, complicated emotional states and futurity. Using installations and interventions, field studies, textile practices, ceramics, writing and drawing, she encourages and documents moments that bring an awareness of interconnection and kinship, gently interrupt passivity and cultivate alternative narratives to our current mythologies of progress and nature. Born and raised on the West Coast, an uninvited guest on the traditional, unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Tslei-wa-tuth), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ /Selilwitulh (Musqueam) people as well as the territory of the Tla-amin people, she divides her time between Vancouver and a small, off the grid island. Brant holds a BFA and MFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design and a B.Ed from the University of British Columbia.
