About

Born in 1965, Laurence Jenkell lives and works in Vallauris, in the Alpes-maritimes. Self-taught, she started to create on her own in the middle of the 90s. Her artistic research led her to experiment with various techniques such as inclusion, dripping, firing, casting, etc. After multiple attempts, she successfully mastered and dominated Plexiglas, obtaining the “wrapping” technique, which will allow her to produce the Candy sculpture that has obsessed her for many years now. That candy allowed her to exorcise devils of her childhood and made her question herself about her own heredity. The artist is going to transform it and work it in various more and more imaginative and dreamlike searches. She shapes it, plays around its structure and its twisting to arrive quite naturally at the spiral of the DNA double helix. Through this new creative orientation, the artist transmits us a little of her own DNA. Exposed all over the world, Laurence Jenkell began travelling a lot. As one of the most significant projects of the Artists, Jenkell's Candy Nations, a series of oversized candies with the flags of different countries, was first created for the G20 Summit in Cannes, France 2011. In 2018, to celebrate New York City as a world city and capital, Candy Nations arrived on the Garmet District malls on Broadway, as part of installation by the Garment District Alliance and the Arterventions program from the NYC Department of Transportation.
