Alluding to an apparatus of architecture and industrial infrastructure, Aitken’s work embodies basic construction methods to balance the authority of the object in regards to her own. Through its materiality and the structure of each piece, the artist reveals an assemblage of two-dimensional geometric shapes into three-dimensional surfaces. Building them through a molding process, Aitken creates an interesting relationship in between the preconception of modernist architectural aesthetic and shaped elements of the everyday life. Jen Aitken holds a BFA from Emily Carr University and had also studied Fashion design at Ryerson University in Toronto previously. She is a MFA candidate in the sculpture department at Guelph University, ON. Her work has been shown in Canada and in China. -Battat Contemporary
