Monster Chetwynd

Monster Chetwynd (b. 1973, London) lives and works in Zürich. 


Chetwynd graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in painting (2004), following a BA in Fine Art at the Slade School of Art (2000) and a BA in Social Anthropology and History at UCL (1995) (all London). Known for her exuberant and fun performance pieces, featuring handmade costumes, props and sets. Chetwynd describes her work as ‘impatiently made’, often re-using materials that are easy to process and to use by the many performers she invites to participate, emphasizing the notion of collective development that informs much of the artist’s work
