Will you still love me tomorrow at Bukowskis
Annee Olofsson

The gallery and gallerist to Annee Olofsson has over the years they collaborated sold the artist’s work. After having completed her collaboration after many years, the artist chose to sell a photograph depicting the gallerist, the photograph was included in the photo series “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow from 2004, at Bukowskis Auction House.

The work was submitted by the artist and was presented at one of the auctions on contemporary art. Together with the photograph there is also a handwritten letter that the artist wrote to the gallerist – a summary through various works and years about their years together as an artist and gallerist. The structure resembles a love letter. A start and end and everything there is in between.

The expiry of the auction was uncertain – should the gallerist (work) be sold or not and if it was sold, to what price? Did the artist need to take the gallerist back? A play with roles. The role of artist and gallerist then, now and in the future.

About the artist

Annee Olofsson

Anneé Olofsson mainly works with video, photography but also sculpture and installation. Throughout her career as an artist, she has worked consistently with topics that deal with complicated family relationship and power conditions. It is about growing up, about loneliness, about fear of getting old and about how distance and alienation comes with all human relationships. At the same time, she explores her own personal fears and trauma and allow different interpretations depending on the viewer’s own history and experience. Anneé uses her own life as an artistic tool for analyzing how we relate to the outside world, she believes that the worldly originates in the familiar in her art which explores and highlights the relationships. Very much research is behind each individual project and Anneé’s working method is slow and time consuming. Her videos and photos are usually based on a performative situation.

Anneé is included in Moderna Museet’s collection and MoMA in New York and at other major institutions around the world like SeMA (Seoul Museum of Art), Korea, Orlando Museum of Art Orlando, Hirschorn Museum Smithsonian Institute and Corcoran Gallery of Art Washington DC , Mint Museum of Art North Carolina, Herbert F. Johnsom Museum of Art Ithaca, The Henry Art Gallery Seattle MFL and several private collections in the US, Asia, Europe and Scandinavia.

Between 2018 – 2020, Anneé have exhibited at Bangkok Art Biennale, The Phillips Collection in Washington DC, Katzen Museum of Art, Washington DC, The Scandinavia House, New York, and SeMA (Seoul Museum of Art). In 2021 she made a separate exhibition at Höganäs Museum and Konsthall.

In recent years, Anneé also works with public art and her latest public works from 2020 are available at St Erik’s new eye hospital in Stockholm.

In Januari 2022, a larger monograph comes out about her artistry “This is Annee Olofsson” (about 300 pages) with the newly started swedish book publisher Praun & Guermouche (Design Sandra Praun).
