Using sculpture, site-specific installation and the design of ephemera, Anna Campbell’s work deconstructs otherwise legible signifiers of gender and heteronormativity. Conceptual, research, and craft- based methodologies are key to Campbell’s practice. Campbell employs props, scaffold and architectural fragments to support models of representation in appropriated and abstracted references to domestic spaces, gay bars and other more provisional locals to access new attachments of possibility and desire from what might seem otherwise like static legacies and conjure historical sites that we might have wished for our ancestors or utopic spaces that we may construct for our chosen families.
