Kenzie Sitterud (b. 1986, Utah USA) an immersive installation artist and designer from Denver, Colorado.
Kenzie was previously a practicing musician in Seattle, Washington before
returning to Denver where they received their BFA in Communication Design at Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2016.
Designing and building queer spaces for the public —Sitterud's installations are immersive experiences that use the domestic setting designed to mimic the same dysphoria that the queer community feels in a world that is not designed for them. The Immersive's are designed experiences that invoke confusion and disorientation in the viewer. This body of work contains The Bathroom, The Kitchen Table, and The Wardrobe. Currently, Sitterud is working on The Bedroom coming September 2018.
Influenced by the queer artists that came before them, in particular, the work of Marcel Duchamp — Kenzie's goal is to create the entire house through a queer lens. Sitterud works with many dimensional mediums outside of installation.
Sitterud is currently in their first year as an Artist-in-Residence at RedLine Contemporary Art Center located in Denver, Colorado. Sitterud is a Colorado Creative Industries and NEAA grantee for the 2018 Career Advancement Grant.
Kenzie is currently a freelance designer and working artist.
