Anne Fehres (1988) is a multidisciplinary artist working on projects grounded in research into social subjects. Her projects take form in photography, digital art, textile design, video, and installation. Anne’s work is frequently site-specific, collaborative and resonates strongly with the community she works in. Her approach to image-making is from a documentary maker’s perspective. She participates and reflects through her work on social subjects, to tell stories and to create a role for herself in order to help build vibrant communities and provide a platform for those overlooked.

 

Anne was born in The Netherlands and currently calls The Hague her home while traveling and working internationally at various residencies. She studied Fashion at The Willem de Kooning Academy and has a Bachelor of Arts in Audiovisual Arts from the Royal Art Academy of Ghent, Belgium. After graduating in 2013 she began a career as an audiovisual designer and visual artist, working across a variety of commercial and personal projects.

 

Her most recent film production, Sakura: An Archetypal Journey, has been screened at film events and film festivals in Japan, The Netherlands, Russia, Turkey and Bosnia and Herzegovina. This film was developed in 2018 while in residence at the 3331 Arts Chiyoda program in Tokyo, Japan, researching the appeal of the cherry blossom and the phenomena of celebrating ephemerality in Japan.  

 

Currently Anne’s focus is on a variety of collaborative projects with the Australian visual artist and sociologist Luke Conroy. Working together since 2016, the artist duo have been selected for residencies in Germany, Norway, Finland, Russia, Denmark and Iceland. Their main ongoing works are the documentary project News From Home which has been presented in six different countries and the video art installation Phantasm which was shown in the main exhibition space of the Hošek Contemporary in Berlin, Germany.

 

Anne's projects have been successfully awarded a variety of grants and funding through European Cultural Foundation, Arts Tasmania (Australia), Stroom Den Haag (The Netherlands), CultuurSchakel (The Netherlands), Viborg Kunsthal (Denmark), Hošek Contemporary gallery (Germany), AIR Karelia (Russia), Takt Berlin (Germany).
