Annee Olofsson

The ventriloquist doll Annee is a tricky and evil figure and is mostly quite mean, just over and unrelated. The artist takes up various problems with herself but does not have a hearing from the doll, which usually enjoys the other way around.

Annee Olofsson learned to do ventriloquism as part of hes master’s education at the Art Academy in Oslo, Norway. A year later and with an American ventriloquist course the back pocket, the artist made this video recorded in Glasgow in 1996.

The work consists of the video as well as a large photograph that is a portrait of Annee and her ventriloquist doll. The portrait has a frame with small light bulbs around.
