Anne Imhof

  • Anne Imhof (b. 1978, Germany) expands the canonical conception of performance to consider documentation and transmission. Imhof’s approach to the visibility of performance negotiates different designs for time and space through installation and video. Her performances can thus be considered as "re-enactments", as they are replayed in different contexts with variations to the installation. As part of her practice, Imhof often includes her friends and peers in a series of ongoing rehersals to expand and experiment with extra-linguistic forms of communication. In examining and studying movements and gestures, often performed over several hours in silence, Imhof produces a sophisticated vocabulary of contemporary performance art.
