Ane Graff

Ane Graff (b. 1974, Bodø, Norway) lives and works in Oslo, Norway. Graff’s artistic practice is informed by feminist new materialism – a re-thinking of our material reality in which a process-oriented approach to matter plays an integral part. Graff views human beings as part of an expansive material network, and considers the body as a meeting place, where different materials and narratives meet. Her work traces the lines of Western intellectual history to ask how the ideas of human exceptionalism and Cartesian dualism relate to the health and ecological disasters we face today, and what seem to be their implications for material bodies. Recent exhibitions include KIASMA, Finland (2020); Rhizome/New Museum/Stavanger Kunsthall collaboration 7x7, Norway (2020); Art Encounters Biennial, Romania (2019); and 58th Venice Biennale, Italy (2019).
