Using sculpture, site-specific installation and the design of ephemera, Anna Campbell’s work deconstructs signifiers of gender and heteronormativity. Appropriated and abstracted references to domestic spaces, gay bars and building construction are employed to access new attachments of possibility and desire. Her work has been featured in Queer Holdings: A Survey of the Leslie-Lohman Collection (Hirmer Verlag, 2019), Erica Rand’s “Hip Openers: On the Visuals of Gendering Athleticism,” in Queer Difficulties in Art and Poetry: Re-thinking the Sexed Body in Verse and Visual Culture (Routledge, 2017), ASAPjournal.com, the Advocate.com, Hyperallergic.com, GQ.com, and the Chicago Reader. Campbell has been in residence at ACRE (Artists’ Cooperative Residency and Exhibitions), FIAR (Fire Island Artist Residency), Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Ox-Bow, and the Vermont Studio Center.
