Annie MacDonell

Employing photography, film, sculpture, installation, and other media, Annie MacDonell’s work begins from the position that, in the twenty-first century, images are exhausted and their use must always be accompanied by a critical stance towards representation and presentation, production and reproduction. Her work draws attention to how still and moving images are staged in the spaces of gallery and cinema, thereby creating multi-layered, uncanny and formally elegant meditations on the act of looking.
