Lower East had the big pleasure of working together with Swedish artist Annika von Hausswolff and ARoS, Aarhus Kunstmuseum when we designed the catalogue for the exhibition ANNIKA VON HAUSSWOLFF – IT ALL ENDS WITH A NEW BEGINNING. (The exhibition will run until 11 August 2013).
“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.“
“… ARoS 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 addition to works dating from the 1990s until today, the exhibition also includes a completely new and site-specific work which Hausswolff has created especially for ARoS.“ (from the museums website).
