Artist Statement

Chester Tenneson was born in Liverpool in 1980 and studied at Manchester School of Art from 1998 - 2004. Projects include collaborations with Becks Fusions, In Certain Places at UCLan, HOME Manchester and Matt Roberts Arts.

Chester's work deals with the absurdity present within the everyday language of institutional order and authority. As a transgender artist, the language of gendering is a key focus for Chester and his practice plays with the idiosyncratic cisgender norms and patriarchal rules present within everyday life. He works across media including sculpture, painting, drawing and site-specific works.
