Zena Zakanycz works with Habitat for Humanity, realtors, professional organizers and junk removal companies, to assist in the movement of material out of domestic spaces. This contact is a means of investigating individuals need to collect possessions as representative of the self within an intimate space. Her latest projects focus on documentation and communication. She is currently taking photographs of light and shadows on a suburban golf course. She has another ongoing project with her collaborator that requires constant collection of found objects and detritus from their current geographies that will eventually be embedded into concrete slates. Earlier this year she worked in Philadelphia at RAIR as the artist in residence, collecting discarded materials and returning her own works of art to the waste stream. She studied textiles and sculpture at Georgia State University and received her MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University.
