Dr Dean Kenning

Research Fellow in Fine Art

There are two main aspects to my art practice. Firstly art as a form of generative exploratory communication and thinking through drawing. This includes allegorical and diagrammatic based philosophical, political and economic investigations such as the Metallurgy and Capital projects, as well as the pedagogical Social Body Mind Maps. Secondly, material object based work that is compulsive, humorous and engages a B-movie horror aesthetic. In particular my kinetic rubber and sound sculptures. The two aspects come together most clearly in video and performance work. I often work as part of art groups. My work has been shown at the ICA, Grundy Art Gallery, BAK and the Whitechapel Gallery.

I have written on art and politics, ‘idiot art’, and art education, publishing in journals such as Art Monthly, Third Text and Mute, and co-organising symposia at Tate Modern, Whitechapel and the ICA. At Kingston I have published a series of booklets based on transcripts from the Stanley Picker Public Lectures series.
