Tutors – Sculpture & 3D
Fritha Jenkins is a multidisciplinary artist working across sculpture, performance, sound, music and video. Research interests include water, domestic labour, gender and found performance. Their exhibition Aggregate: Fritha Jenkins & Edna Lumb, at Leeds Arts University in 2018, constituted an experimental live curation open to the public exploring potential intersections between feminism, queer sexualities, and northern industrial archaeology using the metaphor of aggregate. Fritha studied Fine Art at Ruskin School of Art (2016), Goldsmiths College (2002), and with Alt MFA, a peer led DIY art school (2010 – ongoing). They are recipient of the Pete Lloyd Lewis Studio Award at Chisenhale Artplace (2017/19) and a member of an Artquest Peer Forum at the Foundling Museum.
