INFORMATION

Cecelia Chapman is an artist working in video, drawing and text. Born in San Francisco, California, she is a graphic design graduate of Parsons School of Design, NY. She lives in Massachusetts.

“Most of my work emerges from a deep curiosity regarding the fluid connection between inner and outer knowledge, consciousness. and perception. The videos are contemporary fables, merging documentary and experimental, environment and myth. The works on paper are rooted in graphic design process, often with essay, and consider power propaganda in media communication. I continue the exploration of alternative modes of communication and distribution.”

Her work has been shown: Timespecific with Central Booking (New York), Mogliano Veneto Asemic Exhibit (Italy), IX Biennale Internazionale Mail Art (Italy), Studio44 Film Festival (Stockholm), Magmart Film Festival (Italy), Mitte Media Festival (Berlin), Hamburg Primal Uproar, DotsWaves TV (London), Compostxt, UnlikelyStories, Utsanga, Otoliths, Moving Poems, Interalia Magazine, New Post Literate, Arteidolia, Red Fez, Sein Und Werden, Arteidolia.
