Biography

Existing as both material and encounter, Annika von Hausswolff’s photographs reflect on a range of subjects: the metaphysical reality of lone objects; the leftovers of vacant spaces, such as a derelict swimming pool or an abandoned office block, pieced together in photo grids or montages; and typologies of architecture and structure. Where bodies are involved, her images are staged and performative; her early series “Back to Nature” (1993) was inspired by crime scene photography. Such work poses questions regarding power and body image in ways that confront viewers’ preconceptions.
