Anique Weve is a multidisciplinary visual artist based in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Her work is focused on two areas: photography, both still and film, and installations/interventions with audience interaction.Themes such as fitting into society, failure to meet social norms and a search for alternative ways to navigate in life are treated with a soft touch, a playfulness and an acceptance of the fact that humans and social interactions are complex. In LA she will be working on a photo series about Destiny and the romanticism of things that we can be sure of and things we can not plan. She is trying to build and create a poetic voice against the imagery and influences of today.
After winning two photography prizes (Kracht van Rotterdam, Avro self-portrait price) she decided to focus her current work on photography. She has exhibited at various venues, including exhibitions at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (Rotterdam, NL), Museum Moti (Brenda NL), Institute Marres (Maastricht, NL), Ampelhaus (Oraniembaum, DE), Tent ArtRotterdam (Rotterdam, NL), Wallgallery (Rotterdam, NL), Art et Amicitiae (Amsterdam, NL), Kunstvaai IN-ixactly this (Amsterdam, NL), Art-Residency HMK (Hoorn, NL), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam, NL), and Den Haag Sculptuur (Den Haag, NL).
