主に写真、映像を用いて日常生活で見るものや行為の中に、哲学や社会の成り立ち、政治的な意味を見いだすアーティスト。写真作品”Untitled (good times, bad times)”では、3時半や5時はなぜ他の時間より良いんだろうかという子供の持つ様な疑問に対して、街の時計に止まる鳩に答えを見つける。ロシアからオーストリアに難民として逃げてきた生い立ちも作品にかなり反映されており、ドキュメンタリー映像作品”Aleksandra Wysokinska/ 20 Jahre danach”では、逃げてくる途中のでポーランド助けてもらった夫婦を20年後に訪ねている。

Anna Jermolaewa works primarily in the mediums of photography, video, and installation. Her main interest is the analysis of functional structures of society and social systems in everyday life. She continually focuses on the basic conditions of human existence and the nature of man, capturing the relationship between the individual and the masses, freedom and restriction, power and powerlessness, (especially around relationships and networks of hegemonic structures). Her photographs and videos provide information about a world of failure, through conscious and unconscious fears, desires, and passions. The result is a reflection on individual and collective historical consciousness in the form of images that remain in the viewers’ mind. Through the visual telling of history and stories, she attempts to create places of remembrance. (Text:
