Anne Fehres (1988) is an audiovisual designer and visual artist working on multidisciplinary projects grounded in research into social subjects. Her projects take form in photography, sound design, film, textile design and video art installations. Anne’s work is frequently site-specific, collaborative and resonates strongly with the community she works in. Her work often explores the themes of identity, memory and history. She participates and reflects through her work on socio-ecological 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 lives and works in The Netherlands.

Anne 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, Germany, Turkey and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

 

Currently Anne’s focus is on a variety of collaborative and multidisciplinary projects with the visual artist and sociologist Luke Conroy. From their diverse backgrounds they are drawn to projects that are collaborative and engage with social concerns, ecological issues and interdisciplinary innovation. Their projects are broadly focused upon identity formation, exploring how current and historic experiences at a micro level can shape and be shaped by events, processes and systems at a macro level. The duo's aim is to create works for engagement both in and outside of traditional gallery spaces and the power of art to encourage social participation. 

 

Working together since 2016, the artist duo have been selected for artist residencies and projects in Germany, Spain, Finland, Russia, Denmark, Iceland, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Belgium, Italy, Taiwan, China and The Netherlands. Their projects have been successfully awarded grants and funding from cultural organisations across Europe and Australia. As a duo Anne and Luke have held a variety of exhibitions, workshops and presented artist talks at a variety of cultural institutions across Europe.
