Jill Anholt

(Canadian, born 1965)

Canadian artist Jill Anholt creates site-specific, sculptural installations in public spaces. Her artworks "explore the relationship between nature and infrastructure, body and place; revealing layers of personal and cultural memory and experience." It investigates time, movement, light and perception, often contrasting permanent with fleeting qualities. Environmental sustainability is important to Anholt and can be seen in the concepts and materials of many of her works.

Anholt lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She is an instructor at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver.
