Anna Garner’s work examines landscape, architecture, and social patterns, considering how visual and behavioral standards form ideological constructs of spatial organization. In photographs and videos, she creates fictional spaces for the camera that challenge the truthfulness of these constructs through either spotlighting the fiction or performing to alter and deconstruct the space. Born in New York (1982) and raised in San Diego, Anna currently splits her time between Los Angeles and Mexico City. One person exhibitions of her work have been presented at ltd los angeles, Los Angeles, CA (2019); and Phoenix Center for the Arts, Phoenix, AZ (2015). Anna’s work has been included in thematic exhibitions at Museum aan de Stroom, Antwerp, Belgium (2019); The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC (2019); and Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix, AZ (2016). In 2015 she was a recipient of The Phoenix Art Museum’s Contemporary Forum Artist Grant. Anna has also participated in artist residencies at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, and Art OMI.
