fig.: Anneè Olofsson, “The conversations”, 2005
Anneè Olofsson demonstrates a highly self-affectionate self, which tends to shut itself off indoors surrounded by the most familiar and reassuring aspects, a nest in which to curl up and literally hide away. The artist works with wallpaper as an obsessive/decorative element, just as the objects we choose to place in our own homes can become full-blown obsessions: the more we make our house just the way we want it, the more it becomes – initially – a refuge and then a prison.

The exhibition presents the works of fifteen international artists about questions of the construction of identity. next>>>
