Jen Clay (b.1985 North Carolina) creates elaborate installations and performances which feature non-human forms which speak to the audience through audio or sewn messages to make fear, anxiety, and uncertainty approachable.
She has created performances for institutions including Girls’ Club Collection, ICA Miami, and Norton Museum of Art. Recent projects include “Welcome to Me & You,” a large site-specific installation at Young At Art Museum, Davie, FL. Clay was awarded the 2019 South Florida Cultural Consortium fellowship for her wearable works. A short segment on her practice, “Jen Clay: The Texture of Anxiety, “won a 2020 regional Grammy through South Florida PBS. Clay is currently an artist-in-residence at Oolite Arts in Miami, South Beach.
Clay earned a BFA in Sculpture from UNCC Charlotte and an MFA in Sculpture from UFL with a minor in Applied Behavioral Analysis and Costume Design.  Clay continuously researches encounters with the unknown in various formats, from H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu to actual reports of hallucination experiences.
