Shannon Ebner (b. 1971, Englewood, New Jersey, USA) lives and works in Los Angeles, USA. Informed by various modes of reading, writing and poetics, Ebner’s work derives from a combination of sources including poetry, experimental writing and found language. Building letters and phrases from vernacular materials such as cardboard, concrete blocks, electronic message boards and found typography, her work highlights how language communicates as a material form. Ebner works in photography, sculpture, video and artist publications. Her projects are often realised through installation.

Exhibitions include V-A-C Foundation, Venice, Italy (2017); Los Angeles County Museum of Art, USA (2016); Künstlerhaus Graz, Austria (2016); ICA, Miami, USA (2015); Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK (2014); Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Russia (2012); and MoMA, New York, USA (2012).
