Chambre(s) d' Amour
Biennale d' Art Contemporain
24 June - 4 November 2018

Richard Leydier, curator of the Biennale d' Art Contemporain d' Anglet invited 11 international artist to give their view on the subject of 'love' in an an infinite number of very different realities, from a teenage idyll on a summer beach to the most vibrant, tragic passion. The works will be installed at the rough coast of the Atlantic Ocean.
Anne Wenzel will build up right on the rocks at the beach a more than monumental pieta. Anne Wenzel reinterprets the pieta in raw clay, but rather than giving us to see an afflicted mother's sorrow for her son, her emphasis is on the universal power of compassion, more specifically our capacity for empathy in front of a drama unfolding before our eyes as this fragile sculpture gradually disintegrates, a metaphor for our contemporary world and its growing emotional deficit.

C'est le Bouquet!

The Fondation Bernardaud is presenting seventeen international artists, inspired by the floral theme, that have elected to work in ceramics, most of whom have never exhibited in France. In all cultures, flowers are present in the transactions between the living and the dead, between humans and divinities, and many different meanings are assigned to them. For the artist, the floral theme offers an inexhaustible repertory to address topical issues, whether defending endangered biodiversity or denouncing forms of domination.
The broad spectrum of ideas expressed in this exhibition demonstrates that this ancient, timeless theme has an amazing ability to regenerate itself.

Documentary 'Re-defining Balance (as a matter of fact)' on Arttube

The last nine years, Anne Wenzel was working on the eight meter high fountain for the courthouse in Zwolle. The sculpture is not only unique in scale, but also in terms of its nature as well as in the use of the materials concrete and ceramics. For more than four years, film maker Marieke van der Lippe follows the develop-ment of the sculpture meticulously. The coming about of such a large and monumental sculpture requires an enormous commit-ment of everybody involved; not only in terms of know-how, but also in terms of perseverance and patience. The film shows the battle with the material and the victory thereon.

Night Falls, Day Breaks
Soloexhibition

Departing from the historical iconography of commemoration and of the memorial, Wenzel interrogates art historical and political themes through her unorthodox use of that most primal and traditional of materials - clay. Deeply interested in the language of 'heroism' these artworks question the manipulative narrative of nationalist architecture and sculpture. Wenzel simultaneously appropriates and re-interprets the value of the symbolic in new forms which are resonant with contemporary political and civic challenges.
The exhibition has a certain critical and thematic resonance with other cultural and civic activities which will take place this year in Northern Ireland and in the Republic of Ireland. Specifically, events which are part of what has been termed the 'Decade of Centenaries' that begins with the centenaries of the Easter Rising in Dublin

Beyond Context
Charlotte Schleiffert & Anne Wenzel

In the duo show Beyond Context, AKINCI unites two artists who's work cannot be taken lightly. A certain violence applies to both, each drawn to the subject in her own distinct manner. Where Anne Wenzel (1972, SchlĂĽttorf, DE) fearlessly diverts the tradition of ceramics into remarkable sculptures with a brutal sense of decay, Charlotte Schleiffert (1967, Tilburg, NL) addresses crude social themes with a discomforting elegance in a range of mixed media on canvas. Rather than a dialogue, their individual voices clash and confront one another, challenging the viewer to rethink their spectacle and, instead, become sensible to the pressing subjects that linger beyond.

This summer, the largest exhibition rooms in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen will be dedicated to internationally renowned contemporary artists who have had Rotterdam as the cradle for their artistic career. The exhibition includes more than 30 monumental installations, two-dimensional works, videos and films by, among others, Atelier Van Lieshout, Daan van Golden, Erik van Lieshout and Anne Wenzel and offers a retrospective of the policy followed by the Rotterdam City Collection over the last 25 years. To coincide with the exhibition, a comprehensive book will be published with various essays and a summary of the around 800 works that have been collected in the past 25 years.

NRC

In the NRC of 6 October 2012 is a picture of the living room of Otto Schaapp containing the image Blood & Honour # 03 by Anne Wenzel.

Schaap says: "Shepherd Dogs were the favorite animals of Adolf Hitler. This image represents waning power. It looks like the dog picture is melting. So the middle of the room was the only place for this. There is still enough space for power over to run. "
