Taryn Kneteman is an artist moving between video, sculpture, and printmaking. She is influenced by geology, physics, affective possibilities of colour, and philosophies of objects and ecology. She works intuitively with her camera to consider edges, surfaces, and moments of movement. Her investigations into states of change in infrastructure and processes such as burning, melting, and mixing proposition paradoxes in haptic and optic sensation. She uses patterns of holes and digital interference as screens; layers of varying porosity and lacunae are of transmission, or transformation.


Taryn Kneteman received her BFA from the University of Alberta in 2012. Past exhibitions include Breathing, Antimatter [media art], Victoria, BC (2018); for the time being: 2017 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art, Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff, AB (2017); and Everyday Rituals (survival tactics), SNAP Gallery, Edmonton, AB (2015). She has been awarded residencies at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Kloster Bentlage, and Atelier Graff. She gratefully acknowledges support from the Edmonton Arts Council, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and the Canada Council, for professional development, research, and artwork creation.
