Anna Vovan

Anna Vovan collects words she comes across in everyday life that seem meaningful to her. She transforms the found words and word groups from news reports, conversations and texts, and fixes them performatively in photograms. In the pictures, the words lose their strength. The text literally becomes a typeface that is unstable and ambiguous but not vague. Images of the present thus emerge with no traditional pictorial content but instead they initiate an intellectual orbiting. The images are also media-reflexive works in which the boundaries between photography and text become productively blurred. For me, this way of working is an exciting reaction to our contemporary media culture.
