Anneè Olofsson

lives and works in Stockholm, she was born in Hässleholm and educated in Norway and the United States. She has a long and solid artistic background with an international business and a large number of exhibitions, publications and scholarships in Sweden and in the world. She is well known and represented among others at MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Modern Museum in Stockholm. We have so far met her psychologically complex photographs, where she and her closest relatives act as well as her suggestive video work. For a while, she also works with sculpture as well as with public figures.

 

Annèe Olofsson's work of art is characterized by its deep personal content. The own family background and the artist's own private story are weighed into questions about the background, the present and the future. Annèe Olofsson's parents, like herself, have often been motivated by her stakes. Neither has all very complex motives. She deepens big life issues such as aging, death, love and family relations in a strong captivating imagery, sometimes with the advent of art history. Anneè Olofsson's photographs are always analogous, because there is no digital afterworking.

 

Elisabeth Fagerstedt has collaborated with the artist since 2008 when Uppsala Art Museum showed Annèe Olofsson's solo show "All Ends have a Start", in collaboration with Milovan Farronato, Milan curator. Elisabeth Fagerstedt was the director and curator of the museum 2005-2013. Many also remember Annèe Olofsson's critically-acclaimed solo exhibition at Kulturhuset in Stockholm in 2011.
