Born in Giessen (Germany) in 1978, Anne Imhof is a German visual artist. She lives and works between Berlin and New York.

A graduate of the Hochschule für Bildende Künste-Städelschule in Frankfurt (Germany), Anne Imhof embraces a broad spectrum of media including performance, drawing, painting, music, video, and installation. In her solo exhibition entitled Natures Mortes (Still Lifes) at the Palais de Tokyo in 2021, she took over the entire building to create a total, polyphonic work, like a choreographer orchestrating the fusion of bodies, senses, and emotions. Using a raw and brutal language, Anne Imhof's works, beneath their apparent formal purity, express a latent and disenchanted melancholy that evokes both Goya's dark romanticism and Baudelaire's spleen, as if "haunted by the fleeting cycle of life and the explosions of the present" (Emma Lavigne).

In Untitled (2017), Anne Imhof paints the portrait of a three-quarter-backed figure with a pale, almost sickly body, long and androgynous — perhaps her companion and muse? — in a warm, Caravaggesque light. In her hair, coiffed in a bun, appears a barrette with an inscription, "Now and Forever", which resonates like a memento mori, a mantra reminding us of the transience of life. In this way, she invites us to explore the interval between the living and the non-living, shadow and light, stillness and action, intensity, and disenchantment.

The limited edition of the same name is a digital print in ultraChrome pigment inks on Hahnemühle Museum Hetching 350g, produced as part of a collaboration between Éditions Dilecta and Pinault Collection to coincide with the group exhibition Le monde comme il va (The World as it Goes), in which the artist is taking part at the Bourse de Commerce until September 2nd, 2024.

Recent solo exhibitions include those at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2022), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2021), Tate Modern, London (2019), The Art Institute of Chicago (2019), and the German Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2017) for which she won the Golden Lion, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin (2016), Kunsthalle Basel, Basel (2016), MoMA PS1, New York (2015), Carré d'Art - Musée d'Art Contemporain de Nîmes (2014), and Portikus, Frankfurt (2013).

Anne Imhof is represented by Galerie Sprüth Magers (Berlin, London, New York, Los Angeles).
