Preserve and Protect: Challenge & Innovate

Jennifer Trouton

Jennifer Trouton lives and works in Belfast. She received a BA from the University of Ulster in 1996. For over a decade, she has been observing the flux which the habitus has had on the physical transformations that map the Irish landscape and the houses built on this landscape, some of which have been abandoned or others which have been cherished, with memories both real and imagined exposed. She is drawn to the oft-overlooked banalities of human existence, giving dignity to the little losses that are slipping away; the lost generations and their culture; of childhood innocence subsiding into adolescence and of community based everyday rituals that are usurped by individualism and isolation.Trouton’s work is held in numerous public and private collections. She is represented by the Molesworth Gallery.
