Nance Klehm with Multimedia Artist Gwyneth Zeleny Anderson

Gwyneth Zeleny Anderson is an artist based in Chicago, living where the Ojibwe, Odawa, Potawatomi, Miami, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Sac, Fox, Kickapoo, and Illinois Nations have called home. She animates out of devotion to the fluidity and multiplicity of everything, focusing on sensations and experiences of isolation that are avoided by dominant culture. As a depressive person, the animation process is a crucial, steady reminder that nothing is really stuck or alone. Every project is a spell to transform the violence of isolation, and celebrate each other as interconnected, weird phenomena. She has presented work in galleries, forests, and empty lots around the northern hemisphere.
