Artist's Statement

In her experimental set-ups for sculpture, Anne Wodtcke focuses on the sculptural process itself and the sculptural potential of simple movements of her body in inter-action with objects. These could be everyday items such as paper, brushes, twine, pedestals, tires, stools or inner tubes and truck tires etc. In combination with her body – these materials become time-based sculptures, documented mostly in video and/or photos. Recently sound has become more and more important for her work. Starting with the original sound produced during the process of acting/recording, she now uses recorded sounds from her archive and integrates her own voice in the process of sculptural narration - in her video-sculptures as well as in her live performances.
