Annika von Hausswolff photography

For the last 25 years I have been occupied with photography. Starting out as a documentary-photographer-wannabe I have explored staged photography, photography as conceptual sculpture, recently ending up in the play of appropriation.

As long as we know of, mankind has been prone to represent reality. The desire to relocate the mental experience of the world, to project it outside the subject, seems to be our destiny. To substitute outer realms in order to understand it, change it, dominate it or simply inscribe ourselves into its order. To create meaning and structure.

What are the similarities and differences between analogue and digital technique on a functional, philosophical and psychoanalytical level? Perhaps it is obsolete to even speak about images today, should we instead use words as information, meaning or code?

Inspired by the work of Didier Anzieu, the French psychoanalyst who´s book The Skin Ego in my mind has a strong connection to photography; I will present some of my photographic projects and relate them to the notion of materiality. “
