HEDEVIG ANKER // 29 October 2016 – 18 February 2017

Photography

Photographic artist Hedevig Anker (b. 1969) is known for her poetic and abstracted portrayals of empty and deserted spaces in private homes and public museums. The images, situated on the borderline between painting and photography, are apparent meditations on experienced architecture. Recurring like a leitmotif across Anker's entire career is a genuine interest in what analog photography can be, formally and in terms of materials.
The exhibition presents a broad range of Anker's photographic series. Particularly innovative is one showing analog "negative paintings" where photographic material possibilities are explored in the extreme.
Anker has also produced a new series of photographs from Sigrid Undset's authorial home, Bjerkebæk, especially for this exhibition.
