Personal statement

Jenny Dunseath is a London-based artist and Senior Lecturer in Fine Art Sculpture at Bath School of Art and Design.

Since completing her MA in sculpture at The Royal Academy of Art in 2005, Jenny has exhibited her work widely throughout the UK and internationally. Exhibitions include OUTPOST, Korean Cultural Centre London, Gana Gallery Seoul, Flat Time House, The Royal Academy of Art, Barbican, Cornerhouse and Spike Island.

In addition to her practice-based research, Jenny has undertaken research into the role, value and impact of working as a studio assistant. This qualitative research explores alternative methods of making and production in art, and investigates practical pedagogy and issues of ownership and authorship in the studio. As part of this research she has developed, in collaboration with artist Dr Mark Wilsher, a publication exploring the lineage of Sir Anthony Caro’s assistants and series of exhibitions called Artist Boss that featured a range of learning resources, talks and events for artists/students and teachers.

Jenny is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and has taught across disciplines at both undergraduate and postgraduate level at Winchester School of Art, Beijing Academy, Norwich University of the Arts, Glasgow School of Art, and Camberwell UAL.
