Jenny Moore presented a new performance in the context of Reiner Ruthenbeck’s exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery.

Jenny Moore is a Canadian artist and musician based in London. She makes live events and installations where sculpture and performance meet, using music and comedy as way of exploring the ‘now’ and collaboration as a way of making the ‘now’ happen. She plays in the all-female, all-drum band Charismatic Megafauna and performs with the art collective Gandt, who make events, performances and dinner parties. Currently, she is the producer and host of You can’t win them all, ladies and gentlemen, a live, travelling radio show exploring the insane neo-liberal demands that artists be everything to everyone. Recent performances include Library Gallery, Canada; Wysing Music Festival, Cambridge; Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Other recent projects: Almanac Projects, Tate Modern, South London Gallery, Hayward Gallery (all London), LA Pedestrians (Los Angeles), Bergen Kunsthalle (Norway) and the Printed Matter Art Book Fair (New York). She went to art school twice, in Winnipeg and London.
