Jenna Finch

Works with Live Art Denmark
2014 Jenna appeared in various performances during Hitparaden 2

Together with Simon Raven she performed “Blackguards”. The term derives from a derisive term for the lowest of the low servants in a royal household, the ones who had to carry coal to the kitchens. The term was later used as an insult. As social and economic inequality is currently reaching extraordinary heights, Jenna Finch and Simon Raven re-visited the images of the Blackguard by ineffectually guarding lowly objects at the festival entrance.

The Feral Lady Killers
Jenna joined with Katherine Araniello to perform “The Feral Lady Killers”. While loud music was blasting from the speakers of the festival venue Pumpehuset, Jenna and Katherine attempted to have a conversation that seemed mostly to deal with their dissatisfaction with everything going on.

Jenna also played a concert with her band, the ”Rainham Sheds”, a Post-punk, all female maximum art-core on a primitive tip. They sing about theorists, art stars, shit jobs, mega-banter, sex with furniture and reminding themselves that he’s not her dad. She also was a member of the backing band for ”Disabled Avant-garde”.

About the Artist
Jenna Finch is a performance artist and poet. She writes and performs her poetry focusing on unconventional and alternative performance.

Jenna’s website seems to be temporarily out of order. It re-directs to a very basic one. The Rainham Sheds can be heard on bandcamp.

Om liveart_dk was founded in 2004 in Copenhagen to promote the discussion, documentation and development of live art in Denmark. The organisation is equally inspired by the imaginative and entertaining English Live Art tradition as by the theoretical and political German theatre tradition. We have organised 10 large international festivals of Live Art for kids and adults since 2004, and over 40 discussion events, books, video series, symposia and more in the field of live art, performance art, art criticism and documentation. We collaborate with theatres, music venues, art museums and festivals in Denmark and internationally.
