Chinternet Ugly at Manchester’s Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art Ocula Report Chinternet Ugly at Manchester’s Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art 7 Mar 2019 : Mike Pinnington for Ocula

Megan Jenkinson

b. 1958, New Zealand

Megan Jenkinson is an Associate Professor at the Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland, New Zealand. She works primarily in the medium of photography and has exhibited over a 30 year period, both nationally and internationally. Including the Esslingen Photo Triennale, 1989, the Sydney Biennale, 1990, and the Sharjah Biennale in 1999, and in significant exhibitions such as Photography Now, 1989 at the Victoria and Albert Museum (to commemorate the first 150 years of photography).

She went to Antarctica as an Antarctic Artists Fellow in December 2005 and her experiences there have resulted in an extensive body of work that will be exhibited during the Photography Festival in 2008 at Two Rooms. She is currently preparing work for an installation at the Christchurch Art Gallery featuring the fossils collected by Scott’s Polar Party on their fated return journey from the Pole in 1912.

Jenkinson’s earlier project, The Virtues, 1996, went to eight public venues in New Zealand, and its accompanying book Under The Aegis: The Virtues, 1997. This series was awarded a major prize in 1999 by an international jury at the Sharjah Biennale.
