Anne Langgaard works in different medias and is dedicated to highlight the magical potential of everyday life and objects. Cheap ordinary materials are transformed, thereby creating a space where the beautiful and poetic in everyday materials is emphasized. The volatility of life is maintained in the work in a poetic and humorous balance between the ephemeral and the eternal.


Langgaards practice is an investigative flirtation with the everyday, and it revolves around the aesthetic and sculptural qualities of everyday materials. She is intrigued by small, insignificant details, such as the crease in a piece of paper, a crumpled bag, or used dishcloths. She sculpturally process the everyday to explore its poetic potential, highlighting the beauty and value in the seemingly insignificant.


The works balances between the banal and the existential - between everyday goods from the supermarket and death as a fundamental condition. She believes that there is a unique poetry in the everyday that can strengthen our awareness of being alive. Through her sculptural explorations of everyday objects, focus is turned toward the various paths and detours of our shared reality. Life's fleeting moments are frozen in time and the works simultaneously become pictures of life, reflections on time and reminders of the fleeting nature of life. Through the insistence on valuing an immediately unimportant part of our shared reality, the order of things is questioned. Hereby everyday life is turned upside down, and everyday objects are enveloped in poetry, humor and magic.


Anne Langgaard is educated at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London (2011-13) and lives and works in Copenhagen.


She is a member of the artist-run space Sydhavn Station in Copenhagen, and was also the co-founder of Walther&Langgaard, which was a Copenhagen-based curatorial duo with artist Anna Walther. Walther&Langgaard curated exhibitions and events in non-gallery environments from 2016-2019.
