Kennedy Yanko

Kennedy Yanko is Brooklyn-based artist whose practice explores the primacy of the senses as a means to gain knowledge about the world and to achieve self-awareness.

A dedicated practitioner of qi gong and yoga, Yanko often incorporates the movement of her body to create works—in some instances immersing her limbs or whole body under a rubber sheet onto which she tosses paint and “dancing” in a way that unpredictably alters the paint’s natural dispersal. Most recently, her three dimensional sculptural paintings have served as the basis for immersive environments in physical space and in virtual reality.
