Beth Kettel

Resident Artist

Beth Kettel tends to work with text, performance, installation, costume and video. Kettel tends to her mixed feelings and interest in the flexibility, polysemy and obscurity of language, gesture and objects. Kettel has a tendency towards how disparate ideas can coexist, be articulated and presented.
