Kyle's practice references perceptions of "nature" and landscape refracted through a queer lens, disrupting a normative reading of the terrains we inhabit. How do masses, be they plant, animal or otherwise, impact these landscapes and in turn become forged by their surroundings? Through this process of transformation, constructs that frame our ideas and identities are created. Kyle is interested in the legacies that these narratives reveal and in exploring the ways in which these mediations create new ecosystems or structures of value, intertwining timelines by blurring experience with memory or dreamscapes and utilising physical or digital interventions that empower bodies to exist simultaneously across multiple interpretations.
Kyle's work is often semi-autobiographical, bringing identity into focus and taking intimate details and objects from their private life to tell recognizable stories.
For the last decade Kyle Tryhorn has maintained their studio and practice in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
