Fruiting Bodies

Fruiting Bodies by Jennifer Bieniek examines the human biological drive for procreation and narrates this cycle through a mythological journey; delineated through a multi-sensory installation. Drawing from Matthew Barney’s exploration of masculine reproductive drives in The Cremaster Cycle this installation present an allegorical narrative of the feminine reproductive cycle as a way of extending the viewers experience with female biological drives by using biomorphic forms to represent the biological collective. Using narrative as a tool to shape experience, the work considers the biological, cultural, and societal implications to women as life-givers.
