Anny Wass, received her diploma in design and sculpture as well as photography. Since graduating in 2009, Wass has built a multidisciplinary practice that is characterized by material research and a passion for color and detail, from object and painting to design and photography.
‘Each component is essential for the whole. ’
The series of works, in which the artist uses herself as pictorial material and uses multiple images of herself as building blocks, is the heart of her work. In these photographic self-presentations, the artist alternates between the roles of object and photographer and documents the performative process.
Various works by Anny Wass have been exhibited in Austria, Germany, USA, Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Poland, Mexico and China and can be found in international collections.
Her curatorial work is manifested in the founding of the studio and exhibition space www.thedessous.com in collaboration with Gert Resinger. Anny Wass lives and works in Vienna.
