Oxbow School Lecture with Anneli Henriksson

Date: October 22 @ 7:00 pm8:30 pm

Please join us for a lecture with Oxbow alumni artist Anneli Henriksson.

 

Artist Biography

Using a sardonic approach to exploring existentialism, Anneli Sanaye Henriksson’s work engages with countercultural production of the recent past in order to examine an aesthetic manifestation of melancholia. She creates spaces that reflect ritualistic or symbolic attempts to resist the power of bourgeois hegemony. Through self-publishing, drawings, comics, garments, and textiles, she challenges perceived boundaries between object, action, and place. By positioning the viewer in a space of global environmental, political, and social angst, the work invites the viewer to ask themselves: Ever look at a flower and hate it? Henriksson was born in 1991 in Palo Alto, CA. She attended the Oxbow School in 2009 and received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Henriksson currently lives and works at the feminist art collective the Dirt Palace in Providence, RI.
