Dannielle Tegeder


Currently on view at Tony Wight/Body Builder & Sportsman in Chicago are new works by New York-based artist Dannielle Tegeder. “The Chicago Index of the Invisible: Incidents and Interconnections” is a project that investigates unexplained disappearances within the greater Chicago area. The artist has constructed a space in the gallery for projections of actual and fictional sites of the disappearances and murders. In addition, the artist has also created a series of poems by reconstructing published texts of the incidents and a series of two-dimensional works that act as diagrams, drawing connections and new relationships between various incidents. Tegeder is a MFA graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and attended the Amsterdam School of Fine Arts in The Netherlands. The artist has received numerous awards and grants, including an Elizabeth Foundation Studio Award (2006), Smack Mellon Residency (2005) and a Lower East Side Print Shop Fellowship Edition Award (2004). The artist is also represented by Priska Juschka Fine Art and has exhibited with Galerie Xippas in Paris (2005).
