By exploring nuances in ordinary things Heidi Kenyon’s sculpture and installation practice seeks to encourage viewers to find meaning and magic in everyday spaces, objects and rituals. In 2015 Kenyon completed a Masters by Research (Major Studio Project) at the University of South Australia, following graduation with First Class Honours from the South Australian School of Art in 2007. Kenyon has received a number of commendations for her work including the MF & MH Joyner Scholarship in Fine Arts (2012), the Qantas Foundation Encouragement of Australian Contemporary Art Award (2012), the Ruth Tuck Scholarship (2010), and the Constance Gordon-Johnson Sculpture and Installation Prize (2008).
Kenyon has exhibited her work locally, interstate and internationally in galleries including Shift Gallery, London, Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, the Australian Experimental Art Foundation and the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia. She has participated in residencies, workshops and mentorships within Australia, Italy, America, and the UK, and has made site specific works for public art events and festivals including the One River Project (2012, SA and ACT) and Supernormal (2010, Braziers Park, Oxfordshire, UK).
