7th Annual Transmodern Festival April 15 – April 18, 2010


    onaphantomlimbNancy Evelyn Andrews lives in Seal Harbor, Maine, where she makes films and music. Her work explores questions like: What is our place in the universe? What do we really know? How do we try to grasp the past, or the future? How can humans interface with the natural world at this juncture in history? She works in a hybrid form combining storytelling, documentary, puppetry, animation, and vaudeville. Her characters and stories are synthesized from various sources, including history and autobiographical material. Her work has been presented by the Museum of Modern Art, Pacific Film Archive, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Jerusalem Film Festival, Flaherty Seminar, Nova, Cinema Bioscoop, Brussels, Belgium, and Taiwan International Animation Festival, among others; and is in the film collections of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Modern Art. She has been the recipient of grants and fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, LEF New England Moving Image Fund, Illinois State Arts Council, The Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art (supported by the Jerome Foundation and New York State Council on the Arts), and National Endowment for the Arts. She studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and received a Master of Fine Arts in 1995, and her undergraduate studies were at the Maryland Institute, College of Art, BFA, 1983.
