Ane Mette Hol explores marginal phenomena of art production. Her eye locked on minor matter—items that fall on the ground while making art in the studio, for instance, or traces left in an exhibition space after installing the works—she sharpens the viewers’ awareness of the conditions surrounding artistic production.

The high level of precision on which Ane Mette Hol operates in her drawn objects, the meticulous rigor with which she imitates shades and color nuance, and the deliberate deceleration she applies to her own work process—all this contributes to her recalibrating the relationship between production and reproduction. Worthless objects like packaging materials, a shipping box, and stacks of paper are exhibited as photorealistic images and in reference to ostensibly anachronistic genres like the trompe l’oeil. Although Hol’s drawing and astute manipulation bespeak almost excessive affirmation, the objects themselves remain off-the-shelf commodities and disposable goods—elements of a throwaway society. In Hol’s artistic recycling process, however, the parameters of artmaking and the artist’s contemplations become visible via her own tools.

Curated by Franz Thalmair
