Jenny Drumgoole is a Philadelphia artist who inserts herself into marginal spaces for pseudo-celebrity within popular culture. Her most recent video-based performance work involves the artist physically and virtually infiltrating competitive events with subversive art actions which question our obsessions with celebrity, desire, and the limits and illusions of individuality in popular culture. A discussion of her work appears in the Companion to Public Art , Wiley-Blackwell Press (2016). Drumgoole received her MFA in photography from the Yale School of Art in 2006 and currently lives in Philadelphia.
