HANNA LJUNGH

FOUNDATIONS

19 APRIL - 20 MAY 2012

Hanna Ljungh (1974) is best known for her video installations which has most recently been shown in association with Before and After Cinema - an international conference about moving image in art organized by the Moderna Museet Stockholm and Bonniers Konsthall in March 2012. Besides, Ljungh showed her video installation, How to Civilize a Waterfall, at Fotografiska, Stockholm, during the fall of 2010.  

ANNAELLEGALLERY is proud to present Hanna Ljungh´s first solo show at the gallery. The exhibition, titled Foundations, is composed of new photography and sculpture examining the foundations behind the idea of nature.  

As an extension of the series Vivisections, Hanna Ljungh stages geological excavations where layers of time are revealed and embodied physically. Arranged and built up in her studio, the vivisections are made up of recycled building material, spray paint and personal belongings. The works can be seen as a planned investigation of something that is both memory and factual - past and present.  

Hanna Ljungh works with video, photography and sculpture. She was born 1974 in Washington DC, USA, but lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. Hanna Ljungh has a B.F.A. from Parson School of Design, New York and a M.F.A from Konstfack, Stockholm. Recently her work has been shown at Fotografiska in Stockholm, Galleri Pictura in Lund, Nacka Konsthall, Virserums konsthall and Vigelandmuseet in Oslo, Norway.
