PV: Thursday 20th February, 6-8pm
Since the beginning of her career in the 1970s, Annegret SOLTAU has championed an experimental approach to art, challenging the conventional notions of representation through performance, photography and collage. While the focus of Soltau’s work never ventures far from the female body and its bodily processes, often incorporating images of herself, at the heart of her practice is an inexhaustible search for identity and meaning.
The exhibition at Richard Saltoun will be Soltau’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, restaging works from her early years in post-war Darmstadt in Germany. Presenting works that examine themes of personal loss, identity, and transformation, the exhibition will include large-scale photo etchings, thread installations and archival works from the late 1970s and 80s.
