Langer, Anny

Photography, drawing, painting

I’m attracted by a figurative expression that I work with through photography, painting and drawing. I often use my own photographs as inspiration for my paintings and drawings.
I work out of events and social topic that touches me.
Natural and urban environments are subjects I work with.

Raised in Cologne in Germany with childhoodsummers in Northern Germany and Denmark have characterized the need to move me between city and nature surroundings. This influences my visual work.

Planned projects and exhibitions

I am currently working at a project about dancers from the Tribal dance environment in Norway. In the tribal dance project I work to portray dancers and the dance style. Through interviews, portraits (photo) and paintings I want to bring their inspiration and motivation to the dance form, find answers to what exactly this form of dance means that women of different backgrounds and age find a community.
Tribal dance is a form of belly dancing, influenced by ethnic dance traditions across the Middle East, rather than originating from a particular cultural tradition.
