Kendra Place is an artist and writer working with photography, text, performance, curating, and aesthetics. Her intermedia practice imagines art as forms of architectural criticism and feminist counter-narrative. She works with inexpensive and found materials, amateur or unofficial methods, and vernacular or minor literary forms with a current emphasis on post-photography. Her texts, research, and projects have been presented by various art venues, such as ngtvspc, aceartinc, and Platform Centre (Winnipeg), Artspeak (Vancouver), SAW Gallery (Ottawa), Public Preparation (Pärnu), and Le Musée international des arts modestes (Sète). She has worked with several artist-run centres, temporary art collectives, and community-based projects, and is an editor of Art + Wonder magazine.
Kendra is (nonbinary) femme of settler cultures who has lived most of her life on unceded Treaty 1 land (Winnipeg): Anishinaabe, Nēhiyaw, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Dene, and Inuit territories and spaces, homeland of the Métis nation. She currently lives at Tio'tia:ke/Mooniyaang (Montréal), Kanien'kehá:ka (Haudenosaunee) and Anishinaabeg territories.
Some of the projects documented here have been financially supported by the Winnipeg Arts Council and the Manitoba Arts Council.
