About the artist

Monster Chetwynd, who was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2012, is widely known for her carnivalesque live performances, which feature homemade costumes and a varying ensemble of friends and family. These performances share elements of the bawdy anarchy of sixteenth-century wandering troupes, foregrounding key moments from art history and cultural production. 

Chetwynd (b. 1973) lives and works in Glasgow, UK.
