Taryn Kneteman (b. 1989 in Amiskwacîwâskahikan/Edmonton) is a visual artist preoccupied with material transformation. She documents moving bodies and changes of state with sculpture and video, to consider the meaning of “wellness” as an embodied utopia where the curation of self and products promises control or escape.
Kneteman holds a BFA from the University of Alberta and has exhibited work at the Art Gallery of Alberta, Antimatter [media art] festival, Walter Phillips Gallery, and SNAP Gallery, as well as internationally. Most recently she was an artist in residence at Yorath House Artist Studio and Mitchell Art Gallery (Edmonton) in collaboration with Alma Louise Visscher. She lives and works in Edmonton, in Treaty 6 territory.
