Jennie Savage is an artist / curator who seeks to transform people’s perception of place through the creation of mediated experiences. Working with a site, she explores the dialogues between public spaces, constructed landscapes and the human story. Locating individual experience and perception at the centre of the work, she seeks to draw out and make connections between interior and exterior landscapes.
Her projects take many forms and sit at the edges of fine art and architectural practices. Works have included museum interventions, a radio station, broadcast events, a bus tour, audio walks, a cinema for the sea, online projects, maps, pamphlets, publications and artist films made for site specific exhibition.
She exhibits nationally and internationally and works extensively across the UK. She has undertaken funded projects across Europe and in Canada, Australia, Mexico, Delhi and Morocco.
