“I want to make photographs that create something other than pure reality.”
Anne Hardy interviewed by Elisabeth Krimbacher in Parnass, Issue 3, 2012
British artist Anne Hardy constructs life-size sets that are rich in detail using a variety of materials often found in the street or in second-hand shops that hold precise position in her work. In each case, the result of this process is a single photograph, as the installations are then dismantled again. At the Secession, in her first solo show in Austria, Anne Hardy is showing twelve photographs from the past five years, including six new works.
