Jennifer Rose Sciarrino is a Toronto-based artist working in photography, sculpture, video and installation. Sciarrino’s work engages visualization technologies and contemporary object making to examine the continually shifting line between real and 3D-rendered surfaces. She is interested in ways the digital vernacular affects current and future modes of production, shifts in socio-economic concerns, cultural consumption/participation, and the inevitable environmental consequences of these forces. Sciarrino has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in group shows, including Talking Back, Otherwise at the Jackman Humanities Institute, Toronto; NADA art fair in New York; trans/FORM at The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto; To What Does This Sweet Cold Earth Belong? at The Power Plant, Toronto; and in solo Shows, including Cloak at 811 Gallery, Toronto and Patterned Recognition at Daniel Faria Gallery, Toronto. Sciarrino served on Mercer Union’s Board of Directors from 2011 to 2015, and in 2013 was one of the winners of the Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts’ Artist Prize. She is represented by Daniel Faria Gallery.
