ProjekTraum: l’Atelier Glidden Wozniak is a project space in the studio of visual artist Felicia Glidden (MN, USA) and musician Alain Wozniak (Lille, FR).
We open the studio to the public for exhibitions by international artists for two months a year, and sell the artwork online year round.
Whether working in video, sculpture, drawing or painting, Felicia Glidden’s primary research asks how the body is affected by the environment . Using scale, text, sound and immersive light, she works to trigger unconscious memories in the viewer. Glidden is an American b.1966 in Minneapolis MN, living and working in Friedrichshafen, Germany. She worked with the iron casting community in the States for 10 years, before earning her graduate degree (2012, MFA sculpture/video) at the University of Maryland, College Park where she experimented with media, including video and sound. Her current series of drawings (Trashquilt Prints) explores the violence of excessive consumption, and she often works collaboratively across mediums. She has exhibited throughout the Midwest and Northeast of the US, and in Britain and Germany. Her work was included in the 2017 Whitney Biennial as part of Occupy Museums Debtfair project. Glidden opens her studio to exhibit visiting artists a few times a year in Friedrichshafen and works to increase artists sales through the online venue ProjekTraumFN.com. She has worked as a freelance artist and arts educator since 1992, and she relies on her first degree (1990 BFA photography / art history, University of Minnesota, Duluth) as a foundation of her practice. www.feliciaglidden.com
