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.
