Anja Franke WEB-1

Copenhagen blue Fluted Going Global

the visual artist Anja Franke’s (b. 1962) exhibition Abroad and at Home at Gammelgaard Kunst- og Kulturcenter takes an object as well known as porcelain service (i.e. dinnerware) as a form of cultural relay. this is something everyone uses in daily life when we put our lips to cups and drink from them or when we consume our meals from plates. but Anja Franke is not interested in the stylistic or aesthetic differences in service sets made by meissen, Pilli- vyut, Kähler, royal Copenhagen or for that matter bing and Grøndal although these porcelains might sometimes form part of her interventional art pro- ject Waste Service. However, in this case, this is due to coincidence. As an innovative-thinking conceptu- al artist that almost always works with site specificity, Anja Franke doesn’t care so much about the intrinsic qualities of objects. rather she examines – with her close companions, curiosity and critical sense – the ascriptions of meaning that occur when objects en- gage a new context or when they are transformed during the process.
