“The tyranny of the quantifiable is partly the failure of language and discourse to describe more complex, subtle, and fluid phenomena, as well as the failure of those who shape opinions and make decisions to understand and value these slipperier things.”
-- Rebecca Solnit, Men Explain Things to Me
Anna Brody is an artist and educator currently based out of Tucson, Arizona. She works with video and photography to both supplement and circumvent the shortcomings of written word with imagery that explores the non-linear, non-binary world of things that grow laterally and exist simultaneously. Her current video project expresses a lifetime preoccupation with the layering of romantic, familial, and platonic love relationships in our lives, and the mutual labor and trust required for them to thrive. Anna graduated magna cum laude with a B.F.A. from the Savannah College of Art and Design, and is now pursuing her M.F.A. in Photo, Video, & Imaging from the University of Arizona. Her photographs have been exhibited internationally, and her series Edging, GA was awarded as a winner of the 2017 PDN Photo Annual. Most recently, her video worth it was part of an exhibition in Mexico City at Casa Bosques. Learning by doing and trying with no intention of succeeding are always her methods.
