will present
Tender Surface
“I have enjoyed spending time with you.” “It is a windy day.” The alarm call of a bird when it hears you coming. When we are soft we become responsive to the impressions made on our surfaces.

Anna is an American artist who has been making work around concepts of attention and observation for over 10 years. Anna’s recent projects have investigated the tool as a meeting place be it windsock or text. Her projects have focused on developing communication with remote space using new tools. In her current project she works alongside sculptor Dorian Braun inviting people to become soft and slow towards their own experience. She is interested in the imaginary assuming the position of the tool.

She has participated in exhibitions and projects internationally, as well as within the U.S.; notably presenting work with Critical Art Ensemble at documenta 13 and recently creating a site-specific installation for A.I.R. Gallery’s 2017 Biennial in New York, NY, curated by Piper Marshall with Lola Kramer.
