What's This?

Annika von Hausswolff is a talented Swedish photographer and artist, who was born in 1967 in Gothenburg and lives and works there. Annika studied at Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts and University College of Arts, Craft & Design, Stockholm. She has been involved in photography since the mid-1990s. 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 filmic manner. Her works have played a remarkable role in the rise of photography into one of the major forms of expression in contemporary art. Today, in Sweden, she is one of the most respected artists of her generation.

”I always hang my pictures quite low in order to make you approach the pictures with your stomach rather than with your eyes.”

Her work is included in the collections of the Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark; Astrup Fearnley Collection, Museet for Moderne Kunst, Oslo; Fonds National d ́Art Contemporain, Paris; Hasselblad Center, Gothenburg, Sweden; KIASMA, Helsinki; Magasin 3 Konsthall, Stockholm; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, among others.
