A faint glow of amber. An effervescent hiss. The sound of ancient whale ear bones ringing a carillon of glass bells. These are just some of the features in Jenny Kendler’s exhibition that beckon us into the gallery. Evoking a sense of preciousness, desire, and beauty, and presented in a dramatic fashion, the artist has created a suite of new works that are intended to entice the senses.
