Alternative Secrecy

25.9 2021 – 27.2 2022

Annika Elisabeth von Hausswolff belongs to the generation of Swedish artists who emerged in the early 1990s, inspired visually by postmodernist art and theory. See photographs and objects, spanning from her entire career, in dialogue with a personal selection of works from the Moderna Museet collection.

Annika Elisabeth von Hausswolff is born in 1967. She represented Sweden at the 48th Venice Biennale in 1999. Several of her early works relate to the situation of vulnerable women; the theme of violence features frequently, as in her well-known work ”Hey Buster! What Do You Know About Desire?” from 1995. She has elaborated on psychoanalytical themes and also explored sculpture, fabric and installations.

In the exhibition you will encounter photographs and objects spanning from her entire career. As part of the exhibition, she will also engage with the Moderna Museet collection, making a personal selection of works, which will be presented in dialogue with the artist’s own oeuvre.
