Anne Daems

Miami woman. Some cars. Some husbands

In her photos, videos and drawings, Anne Daems shows specific qualities of everyday life, inconspicuous actions and events which at first sight are insignificant. That what seems like a snapshot or a simple drawing is in fact much more sophisticated. She succeeds in accumulating details on a particular subject – usually a person – so as to reveal an entire microcosm. The spectacular nature of these works lies precisely in the non-spectacular aspect. Nothing is of importance and yet everything is meaningful and mysterious.
