Eden Lennox was born in Australia where her paternal Ashkenazi Jewish grandmother sought refuge with her children after the Holocaust. Her maternal family is Australian, Irish and French. After graduating from Claremont School of Art in Perth she travelled extensively, and has lived and practiced in various regional and remote areas in Australia. She has had nine solo exhibitions and contributed works for more than 30 group exhibitions. She has worked in the arts industry as a curator, gallery manager, in community arts, and is currently an Associate Lecturer in Fine Art at Curtin University. In 2011, she graduated with a Master of Fine Art (Curtin University, Perth), and is currently progressing towards her PhD in Art (RMIT University, Melbourne). She is represented by Stanley Street Gallery in Sydney.

Her practice is informed by how an individual’s relationship to culture and space is expressed. Her work examines the indexing of social space and the concomitant interrelationships of objects within society – considering the crossing-over, relocating and re-contextualising of materiality in adornment.
