Kayla Anderson is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, organizer, and human being based in Chicago, IL. Using a playful approach to methods of excavation, her work engages with cultural artifacts of the past in order to propose parallel worlds. Through installations involving video, sculpture, and found objects she challenges perceived boundaries between subject, object, and image. She earned a BFA and BA in Visual & Critical Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been exhibited across the US and Southeast Asia, and her writing has been published by Leonard Journal (MIT Press) and the Royal College of Art.

Kayla created All Broken Glass Goes to Heaven during her residency.
