Anika Todd’s work investigates Western principles of property that authorize ownership of earth and sky. Reaching into the air and below the ground, Todd uses sculpture and video to reconfigure materials and imaging techniques historically used for surveillance and control of public space, repurposing them for collective/playful use. Todd (b.1992, Boston MA) earned her BFA from MassArt followed by an MFA from The University of Texas at Austin. Her work has been presented in solo exhibitions at Flux Factory NYC, VisArts Center VA and Co-Lab Gallery in Austin TX, the last two shows reviewed by the Washington Post (2018) and Glasstire (2019) respectively. Todd has held residencies at Stove Works (2021), NARS Foundation (2020), and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2019). In 2019, she received the Austin Cultural Art Council Award and in 2022 was a finalist for the NYFA Architecture/ Environmental Structures/ Design Award. She is currently based in Saint Louis MO teaching sculpture as the Beamont Artist in Residence for Sam Fox School of Art and Design.
