Mount Force Express Pony

Loren Kronemyer is an internationally exhibiting artist working with transdisciplinary methodology. 

Kronemyer explores processes of interspecies communication, survivalism, and global weirding through her solo work and collaborations, including as the live art duo Pony Express.  Her work focuses on harnessing interspecies or environmental phenomena to create ephemeral incursions that stretch human boundaries.  She is currently researching the connectivity between a deep-space epoch and the present debate around the naming of the anthropocene.

Loren relocated to Perth in 2011 to work with the SymbioticA lab, and since then has nurtured many interdisciplinary collaborations, including most recently Hobart's Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies, and Perth's International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research.  She is currently developing the work Break of Cosmic Dawn, based on a residency at the Square Kilometre Array.

Recent projects include the artwork Ecosexual Bathhouse, in which participants are immersed in the world of environmental sexual signalling, and the public artwork Mount Force, which incorporated live birds of prey into the patrols of the mounted police.  Pony Express also recently presented Tentaculum as part of Constance ARI's Welcome to the Anthropocene.

Loren's artwork has been featured by Forum of the Future, Portugal; Santarcangelo Festival, Italy; Underbelly Festival; Next Wave Festival; the Fremantle Art Centre; Perth Institute of Contemporary Art; The Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery; Proximity Festival; and Perth International Arts Festival.
