Born in the Netherlands and based in Ireland has directed Anita Groener‘s work through a cross-cultural perspective. She asks what it is to be human today. Approaching this question through ideas of home and displacement within geopolitical realities, the artist focusses on specific events, their archetypal and psychological resonances. Her work engages with the tissue of trauma and loss, transferred by the experience of time and place. Anita Groener uses strategies and economies of drawing, as well as formal aspects of scale and monochromes, making drawings, paintings, installations, film and animation that she exhibits internationally.
Anita Groener’s work has been exhibited at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the Centre Culturel Irlandais, and the Witteveen Visual Art Centre among many other places. Until 2014 she was a professor at the Dublin Institute of Technology where she also served as the Head of Fine Art from 2004 to 2006.
