Guttu Ane Hjort - Writings, Conversations, Scripts
The first survey of text works by artist Ane Hjort Guttu. Written between 2003 and 2018, the texts range from public statements, poetic short prose, film scripts and reflections on the role of the artist to essays on art for children and the link between light and wealth.
“I'd like to conclude by reminding you that I did not write this text. You could say that the real me is hidden behind the words, and you don't really learn anything about me by listening to what I say. The one who wrote the text tried to figure out what someone who looks like me might say. But she doesn't know me and she probably never will. If I had written the text myself, it would be very different. But the song I played was picked by me, (says her name)”.
