Amina Jendly (CH)
Residency period: October-December 2023
Based between Vevey and Valais, Amina Jendly is a Swiss artist, outreach officer and researcher who creates sensory and/or participatory installations, texts, fabulations, videos and meeting spaces between different living species. Her research focuses in particular on places and beings of the margins and liminal zones, on hydrofeminism (A. Neimanis), micro-organisms and the Planthroposcene (N. Myers), i.e. a temporality where one learns to develop respectful, stable and symbiotic ways of living with plants. Jendly graduated in 2023 with a Bachelor of Visual Arts from EDHEA – École de design et haute école d’art du Valais and is currently studying for a Master CCC at HEAD – Genève.
During her residency, Jendly intends to pursue her research into the artistic implementation of the Planthroposcene through three projects: a collaborative study of viable inter-species futures, a study of the bioelectric information transmitted between the “plant beings” at La Becque and the creation of a meeting place for the various species living near water.
