Kendall Nordin is a DC-based artist who has often spent time working in farflung places such as China, and most recently, southeastern Alaska. Her visual work has exhibited in group and solo shows in the US, Australia, and Estonia and is included in the viewing program of The Drawing Center, NYC. Recent venues for performances and pieces include Black Mountain College, Chashama windows project, Transformer Gallery, and Project Dispatch. She received a grant from the DC Commission on Arts and Humanities in 2008. As well as practicing visual art she has performed in music ventures since 2000. Contributions to that world include PANIC, a 22-piece all girl rock improv orchestra. She completed her MFA at RMIT in Melbourne, Australia where she co-founded "The 24-hour Drawing Project". Before she left the written word behind, her poetry appeared in Wordwrights, Rain City Review, and Flat Bike, garnering an American Academy of Poets collegiate prize and a Lannan Foundation fellowship. She worked in the film world for a while, garnering a credit for Associate Producer of “The Ballad of Bering Strait”, an early high-def feature length documentary. Kendall is a rabble-rouser and an instigator from teaching pre-school age children to lobbying for low power FM radio or provoking discussions about working space for artists. Occasionally she works under the name Le Chien Sauvage.
