Getting Dogsy, 2016 Digital print on Somerset Paper 29.7 x 42cm Edition of 150 Signed and numbered by the artist Monster Chetwynd (b. 1973, London, UK) lives in Glasgow, UK. Chetwynd’s practice intertwines performance, sculpture, painting, installation and video. Her work incorporates elements of folk plays, street spectacles, popular culture and Surrealist cinema. Her performances and videos often employ troupes of performers – friends and relatives of the artist – and feature handmade costumes and props. She has performed and exhibited internationally, and was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2012. From April to July 2016, Chetwynd worked with 34 children and 44 teenagers from across Liverpool to make the film Dogsy Ma Bone, a new commission for Liverpool Biennial 2016 that uses the city as a backdrop to the action. The film is inspired by Betty Boop’s A Song A Day (1936) and Bertolt Brecht’s satirical musical Threepenny Opera (1928). Chetwynd’s limited edition for the Biennial, Getting Dogsy, is inspired by the film, its characters and costumes. Chetwynd’s solo exhibitions include: Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham, UK (2014); Studio Voltaire, London, UK (2014); Massimo De Carlo, Milan, Italy (2014); Sadie Coles HQ, London, UK (2014); and The New Museum, New York, USA (2011-12). She has been involved in numerous group exhibitions such as the Edinburgh Art Festival, Edinburgh, UK (2015); the Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art, Göteborg, Sweden (2013); and Performance Now: The First Decade of the New Century, various venues, USA (2012-14). Please note the artwork is signed by Marvin Gaye Chetwynd – the name of the artist at the time of creating this work. The artist now goes by the name Monster Chetwynd.
