Jessica Bennett

(November 2019) Jessica Bennett is a visual artist based in Brooklyn, NY. During the residency, she will explore the ways in which my family and personal history are entangled with the land, thinking through the ways that the Everglades supported her family’s survival as well as the ways they took from and extracted valuable resources from the land. The Everglades in particular are a loaded landscape marked by gender, race, and colonization that is not separate from us. She am interested in using video to engage and push the viewer to a new understanding and appreciation of this treasured and endangered space.
