Drawn to places of communal activity, Feneck’s practice is based on the observation and re-interpretation of social collectivity.
Her work explores social mechanisms that produce imposed forms of social collectivity - such as architecture and national identity, and self-organised forms of collectivty, such as informal clubs and societies, illegal actions and minority groups. Works take the form of film and video as well as performance, text and photography. Feneck simultaneously observes and re-interprets her subject matter through the subjective direction of the camera lens and then the deconstruction of that reality through editing.
Amy Feneck lives and works in London. After completing a Fine Art degree in 2002, Feneck gained residencies, commissions and research projects with various art organisations including Spike Island, Situations and the Cube Cinema.
Recent exhibitions and commissions include Great North Run cultural programme, Hatton Gallery, Newcastle and BURST national and international performance and live art festival, Battersea Arts Centre, London. Currently she is developing a publication project with Sophie Hope, Ruth Beale, Anna Page, FormContent, Rosanna Traina and Karen Mirza/Brad Butler and developing new work during a one year residency at the Whitechapel Gallery.
Our Small Wonders professional development scheme offered artists the mentoring support and technical resources needed for making film and video
