Jill Kiddon, *1987 Silver Spring, USA lives and works in Berlin, DE. Kiddons practice includes sculpture and installation. Her work is based on the notion that the environment and humans are in a state of mutual influence and in a process of ongoing reconfiguration. Destruction holds the possibility of a new beginning; every temporary state is the sum of its previous states and becomes the starting point of the next. The often contradicting elements within the sculptures puts them in a state of tension. Her installations and object assemblages can be understood as snapshots of a moment, as transitory representations of our environment. There is something mysterious about her installations. Do they show futuristic excavation sites that bear witness to strange existences in which the natural and the synthetic have formed into a new whole? The human appears only in a highly abstract form - he only appears as a trace of himself.
