SouthEnd ARTS is thrilled to welcome Audio Artist TRENEDY HAYDEN @trenedy_studio and her unique art to UNLEARNING this week…Thursday and Friday!
Her artwork expresses curiosity, genuine interest in wanting to know more. Furthermore, her art focuses on asking questions and committing to a journey of exploration and discovery. Trenedy's creative habit begins with questioning ideals in our society, the people around her, emotions, and today’s politics. She explores ways to express the idea or concept through visuals, audio, and materials.
UNLEARNING is about our ability to choose an alternative to our preset paradigms. As we grow and learn, we’ve taken on the thoughts and culture of our surroundings and authority figures in our lives. If these thoughts are of a destructive nature, then they become the basis for unhealthy values and beliefs. Unlearning is a skill to practice daily and a lifetime journey of self discovery.
“Stubborn”… My grandmother scrutinizing my life choices while reminiscing about her younger years.
“How to Deal with Heartbreak”… questions mental health videos during the 1950s-60s/emotions
“Who Am I?”… layers of different emotions that express love, happiness, sadness, and anger while over an image of me sitting still.
My video art explores narrative, vintage style, and audio. My style incorporates a vintage style. I believe in holding onto components of tradition. Our past, history, and elders shape our present that carry on. Through incorporating these styles in some of my artwork, I am questioning them and acknowledging the role they play in our society. Narratives challenges are sometimes continuous through generations.
Join SouthEnd ARTS and featured artists as they tackle the skill of unlearning and identify outdated traits or modes of thinking through art.
