Annika Von hausswolff
Photo Art - Photography in the 21st century (Collectif)More adventurous in scope than other comparable compendiums, Photo Art is a vast critical survey of contemporary conceptual-oriented photography. It particularly addresses the work of artists emerging in Western and Eastern Europe--many of whom will be new to American audiences--and presents critical contexts for their work in accompanying essays. Gathering more than 120 image-makers from around the globe, this luscious compendium reads like an international art fair between covers, with the work of artists to watch now and in the future, from established figures to representatives of the newest generation. Among the artists featured here are Roy Arden, the Atlas Group, Seung Woo Back, Richard Billingham, Gerard Byrne, Claude Closky, Natalie Czech, Tacita Dean, Luc Delahaye, Ruud van Empel, J.H. Engstrom, Charles Freger,...
South Sweden Photo Biennial 2011
For many years, the region of Scania has showcased an exciting and current art scene, with the city of Malmoe as its natural centre. Since the completion of the Oresund Bridge, that so elegantly connects The South of Sweden with the region of Copenhagen, the exchange between the two Nordic countries has drastically increased and the cultural life has experienced a refreshing boost. This can be seen not only in the increased number of visitors at cultural events on both sides of the strait, but also in the many new non-profit galleries and collaborative projects being initiated.
This year, the South Sweden Photo Biennial will be held for the fifth time. Despite its relatively small size, it is of good quality and offers great vitality and variation. Since the interest in photography is strong in the region this art f...
Controversial Swedish artist opens her most extensive exhibition to date at Aros in Denmark
ANNIKA VON HAUSSWOLFF – IT ALL ENDS WITH A NEW BEGINNING
Annika Von Hausswolff’s photographs are razor-sharp, sensual, and extremely disquieting. They reflect a psychological reality dominated by alienation, fear, and dreams. We recognise the things we see – from ourselves, from our homes, and from nature – nevertheless, things are not quite what they seem. We sense a latent uneasiness, the imminence of some unexpected or terrible act, or perhaps it has happened already.
This spring, ARoS (Aarhus Museum of Modern Art) will be staging the most extensive exhibition to date with works by the Swedish artist, Annika von Hausswolff (b. 1967). The exhibition is entitled ANNIKA VON HAUSSWOLFF - IT ALL ENDS WITH A NEW BEGINNING and is staged in close collaboration with the artist. In additi...
Annika Von Hausswolff - Ich bin die Ecke aller RäumeThis spring Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall has the great pleasure of showing a wide selection of work by Annika von Hausswolff, an artist whom Magasin 3 has supported for many years.
Contradictory feelings of unease and curiosity evoked by her macabre stories and glimpses of the unexpected in the everyday have been characteristic of von Hausswolff’s work since the 1990’s. In her carefully composed photographs the human body is often physically present or tangible in the traces left behind: naked, abandoned bodies in picturesque landscapes, covered, lifeless bodies, children with chainsaws, or the reminders of human presence in the form of dust bunnies, empty chairs and discarded shirts. Using well-known motifs and art historical references Annika von Hausswolff’s work exists on the border between the ...
