Henny Burnett

Artist, Teacher

Artist Statement: My current practise reflects a fascination with both museums and the personal memorabilia we all gather, asking the audience to examine how we view such artefacts today. I work in a range of media that include casting, installation, collage, assemblage, photograms, light-boxes, projections and sound. The process of working with museums and their archives has resulted in work that explores impermanence and memory; is rooted in the fabric of the home, yet presented in an historical context. read full statement
