Ann-Lisbeth Albek Sanvig

Innocence contra decadence. Aesthetics contra sensuality. Femininity contra masculinity. Seriousness contra humor.

By using symbolic references and ambiguities in her artwork, Ann-Lisbeth Albek Sanvig intends to express, that life is not always, what it seems to be.

Her inspiration is often vintage photos of women in piquancy postures. Today these pictures seem more innocent compared to contemporary pictures, but it is still the same issue.

Ann-Lisbeth Albek Sanvig puts them in another context combined with subtle details of odd or eccentric and humoristic elements. She tries to put herself in their place. Therefore, in Ann-Lisbeth Albek Sanvigs artwork, the women have distanced themselves from us the spectators or voyeurs in order to maintain their inner integrity.
