Gwyneth Zeleny Anderson playfully explores the impermanence and discomfort of everyday human experience. Most of her work uses a frame-by-frame animation process, combining traditional cartoon production techniques with installation, sound, text-based art, and performance. Every project attempts to transform the violence of judgment, and celebrate each other as interconnected, weird phenomena.
Gwyneth has presented work in the US and abroad, including at Roman Susan, the Experimental Sound Studio, Weinberg/Newton Gallery, the Chicago Cultural Center, Roots & Culture, the Hyde Park Art Center, Constellation, and 6018 NORTH in Chicago; MoMA PS1 Print Shop in New York; Peephole Cinema in San Francisco; St. Charles Projects in Baltimore; and @ptt in Geneva. She has been an artist in residence at the Experimental Sound Studio, FRISE (Germany), Mall of Found (New York), and Utopiana (Switzerland), and her work is included in collections at FRISE and the Institute of Contemporary Art Library in Baltimore. Her projects have been written about in Newcity, the Reader, Dusted Magazine, Chicago Artist Writers, and Chicago Magazine. She was a member of the Make Yourself Useful collective in Chicago, and is currently an artist-in-residence at Flower City Arts Center in Rochester, NY.
