Anne Lass is a Danish/German artist, currently living and working on the island of Bornholm. In her photographic works, she investigates different aspects of human living space in the beginning of our 21st century.
Especially in urban cityscapes, she finds conflict areas that influence her images: conflicts of functionalism and individual development, the association with nature, the concourse of construction and vastness and, last but not least, to human interaction.
Anne Lass studied documentary photography at the Folkwang Universität der Künste in Essen. Her photographs have been shown regularly in solo and group exhibitions such as C/O Berlin, Australian Centre for Photography (Sydney) and Museum Forografia Contemporeana (Milan)
and are held in private and public collections.
About her ongoing project she states:
”Barreiro is a town and a municipality in Setúbal District in Portugal. The city is located on the water about 20 minutes away from Lisbon by ferry. I came to Barreiro 10 years ago by chance. The place attracted me magically and so I go back there as often as I can.
The city of Barriero is a place full of contradictions - decay and construction, modernity and tradition, young and old citizens. In 1975 a large population from Angola came along and settled and it became a melting pot of cultures. At first sight the town seems rather deserted. But when one looks closer, there are traces of life, youth culture and renewal everywhere. Street art spreading on the walls of the buildings like lichens. The houses are often renovated with improvised materials that blend and intermesh with traditional patterns and architecture, giving the feel of a modernist painting. Next to the the ruins, new buildings are beginning to pop up. Barreiro may soon be gentrified like most other places close to the capitals of European cities.”
