ANNE LANGGAARD

 

Anne Langgaard works in different medias and her practice is a playfull investigation into reality, day to day life and how the systems that form our world are built up. It is based on a curiosity of reality and perception and how we experience the world and each other. Everyday objects are turned into pieces that defy the norms of our day to day life. Langgaards pieces have been based upon, amongst others, popcorn, matchsticks, A4 paper, food and ‘found objects’. Through the use of humour these objects and their reality are moved away from their everyday reality.  The use of humour is also important in Langgaards works, where she creates a poetic space that twists our perceptions of what is normal. The beauty and poetical elements of everyday objects are set in focus through a futile investment of emphasising the things we take for granted. Langgaard incorporates textual elements in her work, often in the form of everyday expressions and platitudes, where new constellations arise when combined with media experiments. Repetitions occur frequently in Langgaards work, where especially the number 1001 is a recognisable element throughout her work. This element can both be found as a trivial, unconscious repetition and in reference to the magic of fairy tales. By making the ordinary extraordinary, reality can be redefined. Everyday life contains a special and unique poetry that wakes both curiosity and wonder. By twisting what we take for granted, new stories can be told that surprise and possibly open new worlds.

 

Anne Langgaard studied Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London (2011-2013)and together with her own works, she is co-founder of Walther&Langgaard, which is a Copenhagen-based curatorial duo with artist Anna Walther.
