Jennifer Crane is a lens-based artist originally from Nova Scotia. In a broad sense, her practice explores the relationship between the body and the lens in both historical and contemporary images and old and new technologies. Through the creation of still photography, video installations and fictional photographic archives her work engages with issues of memory, authenticity and archival practices. Crane studied at York University (BFA 1990) and Concordia University (MFA 1998); her graduate thesis exhibition was titled Ã¬Cartes-de-VisiteÃ® (1998). Crane has exhibited her work in galleries throughout Canada and has received funding from The Canada Council for the Arts, The Nova Scotia Arts Council and The Alberta Foundation for the Arts. She has taught at The Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Memorial University, and The University of Lethbridge. Jennifer Crane currently lives in Saskatoon and teaches in The Department of Art and Art History at The University of Saskatchewan.
