Annika von Hausswolff

It All Ends With a New Beginning

This fully illustrated book presents photographs created by Swedish artist Annika von Hausswolff who, since the 1990s, has made her mark as one of Scandinavia’s major artists.

Working in a conceptual, feminist, and analytical way with the photographic medium, she belongs to the circle of young fine-art photographers who view and utilise the photograph in a new and often film-like manner.

Her 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 what they seem. We sense a latent uneasiness, the imminence of some unexpected or terrible act, or perhaps it has happened already.

The publication features a fictional text by the famous Swedish writer Sara Stridsberg and a short text by artist Annika von Hausswolff herself.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Annika von Hausswolff: It All Ends With a New Beginning at ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark, 26 April – 11 August 2013.
