Glenn Kaino

Glenn Kaino transforms conventional materials and forms through a process of working that mobilizes the languages, logics and economies of other creative disciplines as raw elements in artistic production. Conceiving his practice as “conceptual kit bashing”—Kaino synthesizes objects, performances and site specific encounters by reconfiguring conditions of cultural spheres, where disparate ideas and materials are forced to make contact.
