Rena Detrixhe is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Kansas. In her contemplative work she combines repetitive processes and collected or scavenged materials to produce large-scale objects and installations, ephemeral sculpture, performance and drawings. Drawn to materials which possess an inherent story or familiar source and often utilizing natural elements, a continuing objective in her practice is to investigate the relationship between humans and the more-than-human world with attention to histories of injustice.
Detrixhe received her BFA from the University of Kansas in 2013. She has exhibited in museums and galleries both nationally and internationally and is the recipient of numerous awards and residencies including a recent one-year research residency with The Land Institute in Salina, KS.
