Ann Wolff. The early drawings - Frühe Zeichnungen.

Hirmer Verlag published a new book during the summer. Ann Wolff. The early drawings – Frühe Zeichnungen. Written by Petra Giloy-Hirtz & Eva-Maria Fahrner-Tutsekand.
Ann Wolff donated 130 works from the 1980s to Herausgegeben von Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung and a selection of 60 drawings is now published in this beautiful book. The works, executed in pencil on paper, focus on a female figure seen in reflections and duplications, sometimes surreal and whimsical in connection with animals and intermediate beings, and sometimes with a man or a child: dream worlds, pictures of the subconscious, often inspired by fairy tales. The pictures unfold their narrative potential as investigations of the female self in the social milieu of an age characterised by feminist movements and discussions regarding the relationship between the sexes.

In Sweden the book is available for purchase at Adlibris and Bokus.

Traps and Transit

An exhibition with works inspired by the abandoned industrial buildings on Furillen, a small island opposite the Wolff studio Kyllaj in Gotland.

Have you ever been trapped in a staircase leading nowhere and you can’t find a way back? Feels like you are stuck in the middle of your live?

If you are constantly trying to get somewhere in life, you are most likely in transit from where you were to where you want to be. You should be pausing and just reflect over what’s right in front of you  sometimes.
