Kayla Anderson (USA) is a mediator between objects and ideas. They received MFA from Northwestern University, and BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Through art, they practices ways of being with the world, of uncovering its curiosities and rubbing up against its contradictions. Growing up under the influence of American working class capitalism and endemic workaholism, they values art as an arena for non-strategic modes of thinking, feeling, and communing with others. They is currently working on a short film about slugs, a species whose practices counter human values of productivity, fortification, and gender binarism. At Rupert, they will begin editing this film, while paying mind to other creatures deemed “pests” in the region.
