Jenny Drumgoole at Auxiliary Projects Gallery Artists' Statement: For the past 20 years I have worked in video, performance and public art. I insert myself into marginal spaces with subversive actions that question our obsessions with celebrity, desire, and the limits and illusions of individuality in popular culture and political spheres. I am interested in absurdist realities that serve as microcosms to larger American systems and in placing my work in new and untraditional realms of social engagement that reach communities and audiences outside of the traditional gallery setting. I use humor, parody and satire as a means of social and institutional critique. Drumgoole received her MFA in Photography from the Yale School of Art in 2006 and received a BA in Intercultural Studies from Fordham University in 1999. She is currently an Assistant Professor at Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ and lives in Philadelphia, PA.
