Adrienne has participated in residencies at Home of the Arts (HOTA) Gold Coast, The Walls Art Space, Miami, (QLD), The Midland Junction Art Centre in Perth, WA, and House Conspiracy in Brisbane’s West End. She is currently an artist in residence with the City of Lismore’s ‘Converge’ program.


Adrienne Kenafake is a multi-disciplinary Australian artist based in Northern NSW. Working across the mediums of sculpture, performance and installation she explores the potential of objects as physical, psychological and extrasensory archives of emotion, story and place. Kenafake’s work incorporates high density accumulations of found artifacts, conglomerations of intuitively selected items that have been collected methodically and then subjected to ritualised methods of transformation with performative processes and sculptural outcomes. Through her actions of intent, the ownerless and the non-belonging metamorphose into relics and talismans: psychometric guides with the potential to emanate undisclosed and autobiographical imprinted histories.
