Kelly Andres is a interdisciplinary artist fascinated with ecologies and energies; those of living cellular species such as plants and animals and those of electronic media such as radio waves, and transmission devices. Through her work she creates installations and sculptures that are participatory, alive and often quite playful. Encouraging interactions between electronic mediums and species such as yeast, bacteria, poultry, plant, and human, Andres deploys simple systems, objects and performances that allow participants to explore their immediate environment. Andres' work has been exhibited at the Science Gallery, Dublin (with the Grafting Parlour), M:ST Performance Art Festival, Calgary, Free Radio Banff, Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff, Babel Art Gallery, Norway, ISEA 2008, Singapore, Signal and Noise, Vancouver, CONFLUX 2007, New York, The Southern Alberta Art Gallery and Trianon Gallery, Lethbridge. Andres has had residences at Media Lab Prado, Madrid, e- MobiLArt (Greece, Finland, Austria), ISEA 2008, Singapore, Studio XX, Montreal, The Banff Centre and the Banff New Media Institute, and Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder in Trondheim Norway. Her work has been funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, The Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and Alberta Ecotrust.
