Eleanor Dalzell Jenyns (b.1992, North Yorkshire) is a performance artist working with moving image, drawing and temporary sculpture. Their practice is an investigation into ‘compost aesthetics and being’, what they deem queer living by way of decaying, multiplying, fermenting and becoming.

Driven by their experiences growing up and living near the North Yorkshire moors their work investigates the layers of colonialism and heteronormativity found in the English countryside. Posturing, caring, greeting, enquiring, loving and hurting all take turns in Dalzell Jenyns’ performances.

Navigating the processes of existing and placing their body in hostile environments - whether through human presence or via natural threat - they explore the ferality of tending to and inhabiting a landscape that exists with and without them.
