As a visual artist, Anne Geene (NL, 1983) captures the hidden beauty of plants and animals. With the help of photography, Geene investigates, collects and organises the world around her. The camera objectively records the materials in which Geene is looking for visual similarities, patterns and phenomena. Eventually her findings are analysed and cataloged according to an apparent logic. Her interpretation of the data is strictly personal and refers to our urge to regulate and understand the world around us. The presented project at Ballroom #3 is a site-specific work, created during an artist in residency in Portugal this year.
From September 2021, Kröller-Müller Museum will hold a solo show by Anne Geene. For this exhibition, Geene takes an envious look at the collection method of Helene Kröller-Müller, the museum’s founder. The works of Geene are in the collection of the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, Dutch Museum for Photography, Rotterdam, Museum Van Bommel Van Dam, Venlo, ING art collection, Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and LUMC.
