"Party of One" by Anna Rose

Party of One, a selection of recent video, photography and sculpture works by artist Anna Rose (SACI Post-bac 2006-07), is on view from September 12-October 15, 2017 at the Maidoff Gallery in Via Sant’Egidio 14, Florence. The opening reception will be held on September 12 at 6pm. 

Party of One suggests a sense of both solitude and playfulness often found in the artist’s work in which the roles and gestures of quotidian objects and familiar symbols are scrambled, entering into a game of shape-shifting mythologies. Engaging in futile feats of hypnotic repetition or the transformation of physical appearance, these works propose a reflection on self-awareness and vanity in a contemporary culture which seems to value both equally.

Anna Rose (b. 1982, Massachusetts, USA) has lived and worked in Florence, Italy since 2004. She received a Post-Baccalaureate certificate from SACI in 2007, followed by an MFA from San Francisco Art Institute in 2014. Her work spans video, photography, costume and installation with a sensibility towards the relationship between body and environment, entering into conversation with historical, psychological, and cultural mythologies of place.
